The iGEM Pasteur Team 2018 will be presenting our project NeuronArch: Combatting infectious Biofilms in prosthetics at the European Parliament in Brussels this Friday 28/09/2018. The event Biotechnology 4 Change is hosted by the UCLouvain iGEM team at the Eu parliament.

NeuronArch: Biofilms are a health risk for implants in prosthetic implants. 5% of interventions in the US require d’interventions due to infections. We aim to produce an innovative biofilm to preempt the formation of an infectious one. This new biofilm will detect and fight against Staphylococcus aureus, one of the main infective agents. Moreover, our new biofilm will also attract neutrons to favour contact between the body and the implant to increase connectivity.
