Materials innovations designed to stimulate tissue regeneration recognised by industry award

BioCeramic Therapeutics : 15 January, 2010  (New Product)
A highly competitive award, sponsored by Amgen International, recognises BioCeramic Therapeutics' use of materials innovations to benefit patients with some of the most serious orthopaedic and dental conditions by stimulating and assisting in the body's natural tissue regeneration processes. The materials innovations also have potential future applications in soft tissue regeneration.

BioCeramic Therapeutics was founded in 2006 by Professors Molly Stevens and Robert Hill, and CEO Daniel Green. It is rapidly bringing the work of Professor Stevens and her colleagues from the laboratory bench to the point of commercialisation.

Its principal founder and Chief Scientific Officer, Professor Molly Stevens of Imperial College London, has won the prestigious ACES Academic Enterprise Award (in the Life Sciences category), in Paris, France.

Dr Stephan Rietiker, chairman of the board of directors, said: 'We take great pride that BCT's success is being recognised internationally. We are poised now to bring the fruits of our labours to the benefit of patients during 2010.'

The European Awards for University Entrepreneurs aim to give public recognition to those who have done the most in 2009 to foster a culture of enterprise, the ultimate aim being to improve the flow of ideas out of European laboratories and into the marketplace. The prizes were awarded by the Science|Business Innovation Board.
