Currently, the Centre for Regenerative Medicine and Devices has over 26 collaborative projects with UK and international academic organisations and companies.
In addition, the Centre has links with over 60 organisations in the UK and worldwide.
The widespread collaborative network established in recent years by our researchers makes the Centre an international hub where researcher institutions, clinicians, companies, charities and policymakers can find a wide range of expertise and state-of-the-art facilities.
Some of our closest links are to clinics located at the University Leaf Hospital, Eastbourne and the Queen’s Victoria Hospital (QVH), East Grinstead. At the Leaf Hospital a large number of patients are treated for their foot ulcers every year, providing bench mark knowledge about the process of healing and the use of wound dressings.
The work of clinicians at QVH on burns, maxilla-facial and ophthalmological applications has inspired the development of cell-based therapy and novel biomaterials performed by the Blond McIndoe Foundation Research Centre and the BrightSTAR group.
