About this book

This book offers a much-needed discussion on the targeting of biofilm-related infections. Chapters include discussions on the impact of biofilm on medical implants, industrial applications, as well as wound and tissue infections. It also offers discussions on regulatory management for industrial sectors and medical environments. Given that there continues to be a paucity of effective antimicrobial products, devices, and coatings in clinical and industrial use that effectively reduce rates of infection or biofilm-related problems, Targeting Biofilms in Translational Research, Device Development, and Industrial Sectors, offers a fresh and much-needed perspective aimed at helping create healthier controlled environments and safer devices.  
This comprehensive book is indispensable for industrial and academic translational researchers, device developers, and regulatory experts looking to create more effective antimicrobial products. 

About the authors

Dustin L. Williams has developed translational animal models of biofilm-related infection to mimic clinical scenarios, such as open fractures, wherein biofilms from natural sources (e.g. soil) may be initial contaminants of a wound site. He is a founding member of three companies that have been launched out of the University of Utah; each focusing on anti-biofilm technologies. In 2016, he became the Director of the Bone and Joint Research Lab located in the Department of Veterans Affairs in Salt Lake City, UT. Dustin and his team manage research programs that span biofilm-related infections, osseointegration, bone pathologies such as heterotopic ossification, and specialize in hard plastic embedment for histological analysis.
