Ask the Expert: Stratified Bioprocesses for the Manufacture of Acellular Scaffolds 

 

Monday 16th April, 10am - 4pm 

 

NHS Blood & Transplant Tissue & Eye Services; Speke, Liverpool 

 

This event will provide an overview of research undertaken on the development of decellularised human tissues for clinical use through a collaboration between NHS Blood & Transplant Tissue & Eye Service (NHS BT TES) and the University of Leeds. There will be an opportunity to gain an insight into the day to day processes that are carried out by NHS BT TES in procurement, storage and supply of human tissue allografts to the NHS in the UK and the processes undertaken to take research from the laboratory to clinical application. Delegates will gain understanding of the regulations that govern undertaking research and development of GMP manufacturing processes for decellularised human tissues from the perspective of the human tissue authority. There will an opportunity for delegates to register for a guided tour of the human tissue bank.

MeDe Innovation - The EPSRC Centre for Innovative Manufacturing in Medical Devices

The Centre for Innovative Manufacturing in Medical Devices researches and develops advanced design and manufacturing methods for the medical device sector.

Our  innovative design and manufacturing advances will focus in the first instance on class 3 medical devices for musculoskeletal disease, where the cost of device failure and need for throughout life reliability are high.

The Centre is a collaborative research project which brings together expertise from the universities of Leeds, Newcastle, Nottingham, Bradford and Sheffield as well as a range of expert clinicians from across the  UK. Our 12 founding industry members are embedded within our research projects, with many more forming an industry-wide network.

Our Centre for Innovative Manufacturing in Medical Devices is funded by the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council and is part of a wider programme of support for innovative manufacturing research centres.
