Lecturer wins research funds

  • Comment
A nurse academic at the University of Hull has been awarded a £90,000 research scholarship in recognition of her work in wound care.

Julie Santy, a senior lecturer at the university’s faculty of health and social care, received the money from Smith and Nephew to carry out a three year PHD looking at the issue of infections resulting from ‘external fixators’ used for treating broken bones and limb deformities.

Ms Santy plans to create an assessment tool to help quickly identify when wounds are infected and will explore how health care staff and patients can recognise infection at the pin sites.

She said, ‘I am delighted to have won this award. It means that I can concentrate on solving some of the problems patients with external fixators have, if in a small way to start with.’
