Welcome To The 4th Edition Of The


Microbial biofilms play a key role in periprosthetic and implant–related infection, which in turn generates severe inability and need for complex surgical procedures and medical treatments with increased mortality and possible medico-legal claims and unacceptable social and economical costs.

Understanding biofilms and developing new solution to detect and fight the striking ability of bacteria to adhere and colonize implanted biomaterials may open a new era in surgery and in treating devastating chronic infections. 

To move a step forward in this challenging field, following previous editions of the Milano Biofilm Meeting, held in 2010, 2013 and 2015, we are organizing in Milano a two-day meeting on 23rd and 24th June, 2017, where we would like to cordially invite you to participate. 

Outstanding experts from different Countries and disciplines will take part at the event, sharing the latest information and discussing future pathways and solutions to improve prevention, diagnosis and treatment of biofilm-related conditions, with a particular focus on orthopaedics and trauma.


Looking forward to seeing you in the beautiful Milano, with our best regards,
