Case studies

Chris Hollis analysing brain pattern

Our clinical-academic collaborative partnership is the foundation of our success. From mature technologies already on the market and improving patient care, to a vibrant spinout company portfolio to our emerging technologies, we have an excellent track record of supporting the pathway to clinical adoption. 

We showcase a short selection of our exciting technologies here. For a bigger selection of over 40 of our projects, search by clinical or technical area below.

BioBones - biodegradable bone composite

Description
In the BioBones project, a novel bone graft material; a composite material with similar mechanical properties to bone, but includes a fully resorbable biodegradable glass fibre to allow new bone to grow was developed by a team of materials scientists, biomedical scientists and a consultant maxillofacial surgeon at the Queens Medical Centre in Nottingham.
Bone regeneration for osteoporosis

Bone regeneration for osteoporosis

Description
Our research is developing targeted therapy, consisting of porous microspheres, which could offer a quick, easy and minimally-invasive treatment that is injected into areas considered to be at high-risk of fracture to promote bone regeneration.
