University of Brighton
Stem cell therapy
We are co funding an innovative research project with the University of Brighton into the use of stem cell therapy for the treatment of orthopaedic patients.
Stem cell therapy for orthopaedic conditions, which involves injecting a patient’s stem cells processed from their bone marrow, has the potential to reduce inflammation, encourage healing, and create healthy new tissue.
Mr Vipi Asopa, a Consultant Orthopaedic & Trauma Surgeon at North Middlesex University Hospital, who is involved in the design and oversight of an innovative research project, says
ORUK provides an invaluable source of research funding for those of us working within orthopaedics and especially those of us involved with smaller, but still valuable, research projects which can struggle to attract support from the larger funds. The MSK network represents an amazing opportunity, especially for academics like me to meet entrepreneurs and potential investors – to bounce ideas off each other and maybe even secure funding for our ideas.
