University of Leeds wins $18 million funding to improve the quality of our old age
Date:6/25/2009

Professor Stephen Smye, Director of Research and Development at the Leeds Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust (and a co-applicant on the grant) said: "This is one of the most important grant awards made to the University and Leeds Teaching Hospitals partnership in recent years and provides an outstanding opportunity for researchers and clinicians to develop new therapies which will benefit patients."

The new funding is part of a 41m research programme announced today by Wellcome and the EPSRC to develop integrated teams of clinicians, biomedical scientists and world-class engineers with the capacity to invent high-tech solutions to medical challenges, potentially improving thousands of patients' lives. The other projects are:

  • Imperial College, London 11m to tackle osteoarthritis
  • King's College, London 10m for improved medical imaging
  • University of Oxford 8m to develop personalised healthcare

The Leeds funding is an acknowledgement of the University's world-leading position in medical and biological engineering.

Though joint replacements have been carried out since the 1960s, younger, more active patients demand more reliable, longer-lasting prostheses less prone to wear. The impact of the Leeds research is felt on a daily basis both by the surgeons implanting these new products, and the patients who are being given more active, more comfortable lives. 100,000 patients have been given knee replacements and 10,000 have received ceramic and metal hips, all developed as a result of iMBE research.

A more recent strand to the Institute's activity has seen scientists working at the interface between nature and engineering to develop products which regenerate inside the body, replacing damaged tissue. iMBE directors Professors John Fisher and Eileen Ingham have designed donor scaffold products which provide a matrix into which the recipient's own cells can migrate when implanted. These are providin
