Cutting-edge new healthcare technologies based on the unique properties of deep ultraviolet light.
u-Care is a multidisciplinary project funded by the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC), part of UK Research and Innovation (UKRI).
The project was awarded £6.1M of funding in 2020 through EPSRC’s “Transformative Healthcare Technologies for 2050” call, and officially started on the 1st of January 2021.
u-Care will involve engineers and physical scientists working in close collaboration with clinicians and biomedical scientists to verify that the therapies we develop are effective and safe.
Through u-Care, we aim to develop advanced deep UV light sources and other enabling technologies, and so create transformative deep UV light therapies.
