Richard Baker, Research Assistant at the Centre for Skin Sciences, University of Bradford, will be presenting a poster titled "Evaluation of the novel PhotoTherix scaffold system for treating infected wounds". The poster provides an update on progress made in the project of the same name, describing the interaction of PhotoTherix with human and bacterial cells relevant to skin wounds.
The project is funded by the Medical Technologies Innovation and Knowledge Centre (IKC), and aims to generate proof-of-concept data for the repositioning of the PhotoTherix technology for skin wound applications. The Centre for Skin Sciences, University of Bradford leads the project consortium with Neotherix as the industrial partner. The consortium is further supported by the WoundTec Health Technology Co-operative as clinical partner with commercial support provided by Medilink Yorkshire & Humber.
