Ampcontrol is partnering with Whiteley Corporation in chronic wounds research after receiving a grant in Round 13 of the Australian Government’s Cooperative Research Centres Projects (CRC-P) program which totals $5.6 million over three years.

On 19 January 2023, Minister for Industry and Science, Hon Ed Husic MP, announced $44 million in grants for Australian companies to support 19 collaborative research projects. Cooperative Research Centres Projects support companies working to commercialise cutting-edge ideas in collaboration with researchers and innovators.

Effective management of chronic wounds requires a combination of treatments that include wound debridement, an anti-biofilm treatment, wound mapping, and a deeper tissue perception of bacterial engagement beyond the wound surface, which cannot typically be seen.

This project brings together a collaborative team made up of Whiteley Corporation, ResTech – a joint venture between Ampcontrol and the University of Newcastle – and Western Sydney University to create a singular approach to wound care.

“This work will be of major medical impact worldwide. Chronic wounds start with a minor skin injury that doesn’t heal but progresses to a problem costing $3.5 billion in Australia alone,” said Associate Professor Greg Whiteley, Executive Chairman of Whiteley Corporation.

“We are thrilled to be a partner in this industry-led medical research collaboration with the Whiteley Corporation, University of Newcastle, and Western Sydney University. The funding enables industry innovators, researchers, students, and end-users to work together to deliver real outcomes for our community and economy,” said Ampcontrol Managing Director & CEO Rod Henderson.
