Microbeads to combat infection show promise in burn wound simulations

Microbeads to combat infection show promise in burn wound simulations
Description
Computer simulations of microscopic, protein-coated beads that block bacteria from binding to host cells suggest that the microbeads could help reduce or eliminate bacterial infections in burn wounds. Dr Paul Roberts from the University of Birmingham's School of Mathematics, UK., and colleagues present these new findings, funded by the BBSRC, in the journal PLOS Computational Biology.

Classic mathematical model could help treat infertility

Description
Using mathematics to treat male infertility might seem rather unlikely, but Birmingham postgraduate student Gemma Cupples has taken a classic mathematical model and extended it to create a way to study the swimming behaviour of sperm that could lead to better conception rates.

National Biofilms Innovation Centre

Description
The UK's world-class expertise in the research of biofilms has been recognised through the launch of a new National Biofilms Innovation Centre (NBIC). The University of Birmingham is already a major player in biofilm research in many different disciplines. Research here ranges from studying biofilms in rivers, through using biofilms to improve stress resistance of biocatalysis, to investigating new ways to combat biofilms on medical devices or on human tissues.
