- Start date: 30 June 2014
- End date: 21 December 2018
- Primary investigator: Dr Peter Culmer
- External co-investigators: Dr Elena Mancuso
This research project is undertaken as part of the IMPRESS Research Fellowship position, held by Dr Elena Mancuso. It has been developed through close collaboration with textiles experts at Leeds University and aims to design and construct a three dimensional (3D) membrane, via a needless electrospinning technique, as a potential platform for the repair and regeneration of the human pelvic floor.
