The research will examine the experimental validation of a diabetes diagnostic focusing on several blood biomarkers.
Dr Iasonas Triantis of the School of Science and Technology’s Research Centre for Biomedical Engineering is the Principal Investigator (PI) on the research project titled, SmartCare: HbA1c Self-Monitoring Technology, funded by a National Institute for Health Research (NiHR i4i Connect) grant valued at £150k, in partnership with Dr Michael Powner from the School of Health Sciences and Tape Specialities Limited (TSL).
The project will focus on the experimental validation of a diabetes diagnostic focusing on several blood biomarkers.
City researchers have also recently received £288.4k for an Innovate UK Knowledge Transfer Partnership (KTP), focusing on the design, development and assessment of an HbA1C sensor for the empowerment of diabetes patients - allowing them to better monitor their condition at home and encouraging them to comply with their therapeutic regime.
Both research projects are aimed at improving therapy compliance and offering a more insightful understanding into patient's health conditions.
