UK-India Collaboration

A 2018-2020 project, developed by Dr Dominic Eggbeer and Prof. Divya Mehrotra in collaboration with Peter Evans, Dr Katie Beverley and other colleagues, will address the need for better community resilience, and local supply chains in healthcare. This will be illustrated by collaboratively developing new design methods for devices used to correct facial deformity.

The project is funded by the UK India Education Research Initiative. It will bring together expertise in PDR, Morriston Hospital and King George's Medical University. It builds on existing relationships and will develop research necessary for long-term collaborations between researchers, industry partners and community actors in the UK and India.

The objectives are to:

  • Collaboratively-develop regionally-appropriate methods that will enable the provision of custom made devices used to correct facial deformity to a greater number of people in India, and to test the feasibility of the new approach.

  • Identify and prioritise new collaborative research projects to overcome the challenges identified.

  • Develop community, training and industry partnerships that will help to implement the research.

We will achieve these objectives through a series of exchange visits, outreach programmes and project challenges during 2018 and 2019. 

Further details on the project and the first two visits can be found at
