Research fellowships to advance medical treatments and bring new science to market
Date:2/6/2013

Two new research fellowships that will enable blood stem cells to be grown for medical use and bring science innovations to market more quickly have been awarded 2.5 million by the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC).

Fellowships were awarded to:

  • Dr Rob Thomas from Loughborough University 1.3 million
  • Dr Nathan Crilly from the University of Cambridge 1.2 million

Mark Claydon-Smith, Lead of Manufacturing the Future, EPSRC, said: "Manufacturing innovation has been repeatedly highlighted in the Government's strategy for growth. The EPSRC seeks to develop the research skills and knowledge needed for a successful manufacturing economy through the 21st century. A key part of this strategy is supporting individuals with the drive, vision and intellect to create and lead new research fields with the potential to transform UK manufacturing."

A research project into how to make large quantities of cells in the lab could lead to new treatments for serious diseases and produce stocks of manufactured blood or platelets for transfusions.

The project will develop tools to manufacture large quantities of medically valuable cells from umbilical cord blood. This may in turn, form the basis of a manufactured blood bio-products industry.

Dr Thomas said: "Within the next five years there will be substantial advances in treatments using cell based therapies. My proposed research will provide the manufacturing tools to enable the clinical community to deliver a new cohort of treatments for serious diseases to patients in the UK as well as support an important new economic activity in the UK.
