A Personalized 3D Oxygen-Sensing Skin Graft for the Diagnosis and Treatment of Chronic Wounds in Patients with Diabetes
Grant Amount: NIS 4.2 Million
About the Project
The study’s main aim is to develop new approaches for personalized diagnoses and treatments of chronic diabetic wounds. More specifically, the researchers plan to offer a radical new way of treating wounds by means of a personalized, wound-specific, artificial skin graft combined with personalized oxygen therapy. The oxygen therapy will be based on a novel magnetic-resonance methodology for wound-specific non-invasive monitoring of oxygen levels.
