Company/organization description (<500 characters)

TBP is a research and development company making advanced bandage products using non-toxic, biodegradable microneedles to deliver biologics and therapeutic agents under the epidermis (stratum corneum) allowing wounds and infections to heal 'from the inside out'. Our product is targeted toward MRSA infections and chronic, non-healing wounds (e.g. diabetic foot ulcers, pressure ulcers, venous ulcers).

We have participated in Accelerate UConn, the NSF I-Corps CCEI Summer Fellowship program and have received seed funding from the BioScience Pipeline and Third Bridge Programs (both supported by CT-Next). We are currently enrolled in the ABCT program. We are in our third round of prototyping and have begun testing the product on explanted human skin. We have a six-member scientific team spanning the fields for microbiology, wound healing (clinical), pharmacology, skin pathology, biomedical engineering and immunology. We have also formed a four-member business advisory team.

What people are saying about Therapeutic Bandage Products ...

 Therapeutic Bandage Products was created in response to a need for a better treatment for MRSA patients, and was inspired by an article UConn faculty, Dr. Lawrence Silbart read explaining the pains of patients and the frustration of wound care specialists in treating them. Current treatment includes high doses of antibiotics intravenously or orally, which is promoting antibiotic resistance which is a growing problem for the hospital community and beyond. Their device caters to advanced wound care by administering therapeutics through micro-needles to treat wounds including chronic non-healing wounds and Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA). This venture has participated in CCEI’s Accelerate UConn and Summer Fellowship and has recently been invited to participate in the Accelerator for Biosciences in Connecticut (ABCT).
