  • Multipurpose, Novel, Nanocomposite Coatings for Medical Devices

    Researchers at the University of Dundee have developed novel coating strategies to prevent medical device-related infections and complications.

    Expires: Created:
  • Strategy for Enhancing the Performance of Vaccines

    Researchers at the University of Dundee have designed and synthesised a novel, multifunctional protease inhibitor that has the potential to significantly enhance the performance of vaccines through proteolytic modulation.

    Expires: Created:
  • Novel chemical probes of epigenetic protein function

    Researchers at the University of Dundee have developed a robust and original method for interrogating the activity of single bromodomain proteins, which will assist in exploring their role in the epigenetics of health and disease.

    Expires: Created:
  • Novel adjunct therapy to eliminate opioid tolerance and mitigate side effects

    Researchers at the University of Dundee have identified an adjunct to opioid therapy that suppresses the development of tolerance and may mitigate other severe side effects associated with opioid use.

    Expires: Created:
  • Particle Sorting by Dynamic Acoustic Travelling Waves

    This technology allows for effective separate suspended particles based on their stiffness, sorting by size and density. The separation uses dynamic acoustic fields enabling separation over a large distance, increasing the efficiency and throughput as compared to one operating on frequency shifting....

    Expires: Created:
  • Biomarker assay to enable safe corticosteroid withdrawal

    Using hypothesis-free metabolomics screening, a list of seven biomarkers has been identified that, when combined, are highly sensitive in predicting corticosteroid dose and, thus, the risk of adrenal insufficiency on corticosteroid withdrawal. Quantitative assays for these metabolites will create a ...

    Expires: Created:
  • New method of detecting endoscope position

    A method of accurately determining the exact position of the end of the fibre of an endoscope during a procedure, by optically imaging through the body. This gives precise knowledge of the location of observed tissue abnormalities, and the ability to effectively sample multiple regions of an organ.

    Expires: Created:
  • Bacterial Strains for Antibiotic Drug Discovery

    This technology consists of 12 K. pneumoniae strains that which have been genetically engineered to carry mutations affecting key cell functions known to be implicated in the development of drug resistance including antimicrobial efflux, virulence, transcription factor regulation and membrane stabil...

    Expires: Created:
  • High precision remote measurement of the purity of a fluid by interferometric refractometry

    Researchers at the University of Aberdeen have developed a low-cost, high-precision measurement device to determine the purity of any fluid from the interference pattern of two beams of light that traverse a fluid sample. The device can be deployed for remote monitoring and reduces time and cost of ...

    Expires: Created:
  • Therapeutic target for treating vascular pathologies

    A long non-coding RNA target that regulates the proliferation of vascular smooth muscle cells, is present in the plasma of cardiovascular disease patients, and found at increased levels in unstable regions of atherosclerotic plaques. Therapeutic targeting of this molecule could inhibit vascular remo...
