Prof Amir Ghaemmaghami awarded a Horizon Europe grant


Prof. Amir Ghaemmaghami

Prof Amir Ghaemmaghami has been awarded a Horizon Europe grant to develop new immune competent tissue models for assessing the biocompatibility and immunogenicity of new materials. The project is called TOXBOX and is due to start in January 2024. The consortium includes 17 partners across Europe. This project complements another recently funded project by the NC3Rs that is focused on developing a foreign body on chip platform using induced pluripotent stem cells, which is also due to start in January 2024.

Further to the good news, Prof Ghaemmaghami is chairing a symposium entitled ‘Lost in Time: Ageing and Immunity’ during 18th International Congress of Immunology in Cape Town in November 2024, where he will also be presenting an overview of progress made in Nottingham on immune-instructive materials for wound healing and tissue regeneration.

Additionally, Amir has organised and will be chairing a symposium on ‘Discovery, characterisation and applications of immune-instructive materials’ during the World Biomaterial Conference in 2024 in South Korea.
