The grant fully funds a PhD level study which will be jointly supervised by Dr. Matthew Hardman from the University of Hull and Dr. Thomas Harle, CTO of Fourth State Medicine,. The British Skin Foundation funding has provided access to University of Hull’s excellent facilities and links, accelerating the development of the wound care product.
