Industry Partners Invited to Work with National Colorectal Therapies Centre

Medical device companies and industry representative are being urged to attend a national meeting about ways to improve technologies used in the treatment of colorectal diseases


The National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) Colorectal Therapies Healthcare Technology Co-operative (HTC) is reaching out to companies in the Healthcare Technologies sector to aid the development of new technologies for application in colorectal diseases such as: Bowel Cancer, Crohns, Colitis and Continence.

The Colorectal Therapies HTC is a new nationwide centre, funded by the NIHR, to foster innovation in colorectal therapies. The event will be the second meeting of the HTC, following its launch earlier this year.

The HTC is currently working on projects with several SMEs in the Yorkshire region and wishes to expand its commercial links across the UK technology network. The national meeting will bring together industry partners with scientists, engineers and patients to stimulate novel and exciting ideas for new technologies and treatments in colorectal disease.

Professor David Jayne, of the University of Leeds and Clinical Director of the NIHR Colorectal Therapies HTC, said: “This meeting will bring together the best experts from engineering and science to apply their knowledge to areas of unmet clinical need identified by NHS clinicians and patients and the public. It will be a fascinating day leading to fruitful partnerships that will develop the next generation of innovative treatments for patients with colorectal disease.” 

The NIHR Colorectal Therapies HTC meeting will take place at the Leeds Royal Armouries on 17 October 2013.
