Knowledge Transfer Partnership (KTP) - Mint Diagnostics, University of Brighton, SHORE-C
Chief Investigator: Dr Mel Flint (University of Brighton)
Associate Investigator: Dr Haya Intabli (Mint Diagnostics, University of Brighton)
SHORE-C Collaborators: Dr Helena Harder, Professor Valerie Jenkins
This is a research study on user acceptability of a home-testing kit for saliva cortisol measurement.
SHORE-C are working with Dr Mel Flint and her team at the University of Brighton on a 3-year UKRI Innovate UK KTP project.
This KTP project aims to exploit Mint Diagnostics' technology, currently under development for human performance (Hormonix-Sport), by tailoring it to meet the needs of the health market (Hormonix-Health), and by enabling remote salivary stress hormone monitoring in IVF patients and cancer patients.
Dr Helena Harder and Professor Valerie Jenkins are supervising/educating the KTP Associate, Dr Haya Intabli on how to engage patients with cancer with this project, and how to conduct focus groups and analyse and interpret qualitative data.
