Research project:  STINTS - Skin Tissue Integrity under Shear

Currently Active: 
Project type: 

In 2019, we acquired European Union funding with five other academic partners and healthcare companies e.g Phillips Personal Healthcare, Unilever, for an Innovative Training Network (ITN) " STINTS - Skin Tissue Integrity under Shear”.


Our specific focus is to develop physical and biomarker sensing for early detection of different forms of skin damage with the support from three Emerging Career Researchers (ECRs) who are being nurtured as future leaders of research in skin health.                 

The Ethical aspects and the implementation of effective skin health promotion within the overall programme is being managed by Professor Lisette Schoonhoven, an ex-President of the European Pressure Ulcer Advisory Panel (EPUAP), who remains a part-time member of our group in Southampton.
