AHSN North East & North Cumbria launches a new unmet need call for serum/PSA self-testing

By April 1, 2022No Comments

The Academic Health Science Network for the North East and North Cumbria recently launched a new unmet need call, in partnership with South Tees Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, County Durham and Darlington NHS Foundation Trust and the Northern Cancer Alliance, to find a partner to help with the development of a device, allowing patients to self-test for their serum/blood Prostate Specific Antigen (PSA) concentrations, within a home or community setting. They are looking for innovative technologies capable for use by prostate cancer patients, or their carers.

Applications are welcomed from companies of all sizes, individuals, NHS teams and charities interested in forming collaborations to develop the device to address this unmet need.

The call for expressions of interest is now open until 12 noon on Friday 22 April. Further information can be found here, with the link to submit expressions of interest here.
