Rochal conducts basic research on synthetic and naturally modified polymers that serve as substrates for human cell attachment, viability, and proliferation. These products offer benefit without the use of added growth factors, proteins, or cells (either autologous or allogeneic). This work facilitates the development of unique burn and wound care products.
Rochal has created innovative antimicrobial technologies for infection mediation and biofilm control. The science for these technologies draws on synergy between fundamental chemical and biological actions. Continuing research focuses on specific microbiome environments and surrounding conditions.
A cornerstone in Rochal’s research is the creation of a flowable biomaterial that is conformable to wound void spaces and fosters a cellular environment that supports revascularization and wound healing.
