OUR STORY

TISSUE RECONSTRUCTION

TISSIUM was founded in 2013 to address one of the most persistent medical challenges since the inception of surgical procedures: to reconstruct damaged tissue and restore its natural function.

POTENTIAL

Since the discovery of our first polymer at the labs of Bob Langer and Jeff Karp at MIT, we recognized the exceptional potential for our technology to revolutionize the field of tissue reconstruction in multiple therapeutic areas.

MODULAR APPROACH

Our unique approach to product development leverages the knowledge gained from the development of our technology platform comprised of proprietary polymers, activation technologies, and delivery devices.

INTEGRATED PLATFORM

We have developed a fully integrated innovation, design, commercialization and manufacturing platform to support our internal programs as well as co-development partnerships with leaders in the medtech industry.
