Virtual EWMA 2020, 18-19 Nov
We will be virtually exhibiting at the 30th Annual Conference of the European Wound Management Association (EWMA) from 18-19 November 2020. Electrospun biomaterials hold great promise for advanced wound healing. Microfibre scaffolds can be fabricated from synthetic or natural polymers with architectures that mimic natural extracellular matrix and can guide cells to heal without scarring…. Read more »
Trip to Ibaraki Prefecture in Japan
Late 2019, the Japanese External Trade Organisation (JETRO) approached me with the opportunity to visit the Ibaraki prefecture in Japan to explore collaboration with local companies. Little did I know that the particular city in question, Tsukuba, is one of the hotbeds in R&D in Japan. Successive meetings and calls with the excellent UK-based JETRO… Read more »

Synthetic wound healing membrane
‘Synthetic Amniotic Membrane’ development project supported by InnovateUK and the UKI2S Accelerator Programme for Technology Development Projects. For many of us, there is hardly any more life-changing disability imaginable than loss of sight. Whether through trauma or disease, the inability to rely on visual cues impacts on all matters of daily life; doing your job… Read more »
Thermoresponsive 3D cell culture scaffolds
A publication in Acta Biomaterialia by a team at Nottingham University, led by Profs Felicity Rose and Cameron Alexander, describes how a thermoresponsive polymer can be incorporated into 3D cell culture scaffolds to facilitate cell release. This thermoresponsive electrospun scaffold system combines the advantages of providing a physiologically relevant environment to maintain a desirable cell… Read more »
