Assistant Professor Mariena van der Plas has been granted DKK 2.75 million from LEO Foundation
Mariena van der Plas from the LEO Foundation Center for Cutaneous Drug Delivery was awarded with the grant for the project ‘Development of Biomarkers and Models for Wound Infection.’
The aim of this project is to define novel diagnostic and prognostic peptide-based biomarkers for assessment of healing and infection risk in non-healing wounds. The outcomes have the potential to improve diagnostic evaluations of wounds and will enable the development of novel treatment concepts for early prevention of infection, leading to improved healing results for large and significant patient groups.
The project will be done in collaboration with researchers at DTU Bioengineering and Lund University.
