4SM Wins MedCity Grant

We are thrilled to announce that we have secured funding from the MedCity Collaborate to innovate scheme to allow a collaboration between Fourth State Medicine and Queen Mary university. We will be working closely with skin expert Dr. Rosalind Hannen to build our clinical evidence to aid the development of our plasma wound care products.The study will cover both the fundamental interactions of plasma with cells as well as looking at advanced wound models to assess healing rates and antimicrobial action.  Of the 16 projects that were funded ours was (again!) the number 1 ranked project- Riam Kanso had this to say about us:

“Fourth State Medicine with Dr Rosalind Hannen from QMUL submitted an excellent application to the Collaborate to Innovate Programme, which will investigate the role of plasma on wound healing for diabetic patients. Their project was the top-ranking one amidst the pool of applications, and we wish them the best of luck in what we hope to be a long and exciting collaboration”
