Dr Peter Iddon, Development Manager at Neotherix, will be presenting at the Medical Technologies IKC and Regener8 Annual Conference 2018. This conference will take place on Friday 29 June 2017 in Leeds and is focussed on best practice in translating regenerative devices.
Peter will be co-presenting "Evaluation of the novel PhotoTherix scaffold system for treating infected skin wounds: an update" with Richard Baker, Research Assistant at the Centre for Skin Sciences at the University of Bradford. The presentation will describe work carried out to evaluate the interaction of PhotoTherix antimicrobial-releasing scaffold 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 in addition to those already explored for oral surgery and periodontology. The Centre for Skin Sciences, University of Bradford leads the project consortium with Professor Des Tobin as Principal Investigator and Neotherix as the industrial partner. The consortium was supported by the WoundTec Health Technology Co-operative as clinical partner with commercial support provided by Medilink Yorkshire & Humber.
