There are many different kinds of dressing materials available for treating wounds. Selecting the appropriate one must take into account the different types of wounds and also their healing states. This project involves the design and development of wound dressings based on organic-inorganic nanocomposites which can accelerate the healing process (addressing haemostasis, inflammation, proliferation, maturation or remodelling). Moreover, this study will develop a new family of composites for enhanced wound healing, which should enable the remedial treatment of specific wounds in the shortest possible time. This is to be achieved without any side effects and with minimum scar formation and antibacterial properties.
