Aegis Biosciences Receives WTC Research Grant
Aegis Biosciences has received a WTC research grant to study the healing of wounds. Treating chronic or slow-healing wounds can be a challenge. It is estimated that over 2 million people suffer from chronic wounds annually in the U.S. alone. The costs to treat these wounds are high, ranging from a few thousand dollars to as much as $80,000 for serious wounds. The costs are high because the treatment times are long and involve multiple therapies at various stages of healing that can include monitoring for, and treating infection(s). Aegis Biosciences is looking to develop a new “smart” interactive wound dressing that can be customized to treat a multitude of injuries including chronic wounds, burns, and surgical wounds at an affordable cost. The dressings utilize a patented hydrogel material in the form of microspheres to create a hydrophilic wound dressing with the ability to prevent infection, modulate noxious biomolecules, and stimulate healing. The dressing is able to deliver multiple therapeutic agents in order to address a variety of complex biochemical issues, while simultaneously protecting the wound, maintaining and controlling moisture, and combating infection. Research Partner is Stephen Warren, PhD, Gonzaga University, Chemistry Department.

WTC awards more than $1.3 million annually through its RTD grants program to university researchers teamed with entrepreneurial technology companies on projects that show commercial potential. Applicants are eligible for funding ranging from $40,000 for proof-of-concept projects up to $300,000 for multi-phase projects.
