About us

Glialign was established in 2018 to take forward the work of UCL academics in engineering live neural tissue.

Our current project has been funded by the UCL Technology Fund, UK Innovation and Science: Seed Fund (UKI2S) and Innovate UK.

Our founders James Phillips and John Sinden are currently optimising a method for producing a living nerve growth guide designated “EngNT”, which is intended as an ‘off-the-shelf’ nerve replacement – primarily for peripheral nerve repair. This represents an innovative engineering solution to an unmet clinical need.
