This review article presents the potential strategies of material surface modification by using polymeric approaches to design anti-infectious materials. Supported by recent examples such as utilizing either microbe lethal or repelling properties, different strategies to the design of antimicrobial surfaces are reviewed. The deposition strategies for creating polymer modified antibacterial surfaces are described.
