A Camstent coated catheter
Medical Research Council (MRC) Confidence in Concept funding has been awarded to Don Sharkey and Morgan Alexander to investigate translation of coatings which reduce bacterial colonisation already approved as adult catheters by Camstent Ltd as pediatric devices for the care of pre-term infants.
The Confidence in Concept (CiC) scheme is a key part of MRC’s translational research strategy and provides annual awards of up to £1 million to institutions to flexibly support a portfolio of early stage translational research projects. It is intended to accelerate the transition from discovery research to translational development projects by supporting preliminary work or feasibility studies to establish the viability of an approach.
