New CNH Research Forum Details
One of the biggest challenges facing the future of healthcare is enhancing early intervention in diagnosing and treating diseases in non-hospital environments; in the home, community clinic or local doctors’ surgery. Current medical practice is based around relatively late intervention, which with many diseases does not result in complete cure, but rather extends a patient’s life whilst, hopefully, maintaining quality of life. The key to early intervention is the earliest possible detection of disease, and the swift identification of appropriate medical or surgical treatments.
The Centre for NanoHealth (CNH) will be located within a Clinical and Biomedical research environment on Swansea’s Singleton hospital site, giving access to patients and creating a pioneering, integrated facility in which novel devices and sensors can be designed, manufactured, functionalised, tested and evaluated.
The Centre for NanoHealth is a unique interdisciplinary reseach centre based on the application of Nanotechnology leading innovations in Healthcare. Click here to find out more about the concept
The Centre has developed a fully integrated work flow and companies or interested parties can engage with us at any step from concept and design through to scale-up and commercialisation. If you would like to register to work with us, please submit your details here
The Centre for NanoHealth is actively engaged with R&D projects in collaboration with small businesses, other higher education establishments, international corporations and the NHS trust. To see the current portfolio of R&D areas please click here
