TISSIUM has taken a modular approach to product development, developing a technology platform comprised of proprietary polymers, activation technologies, and delivery devices. This modular approach has enabled TISSIUM to innovate in different therapeutic areas, and leverage the knowledge gained from the development process.

The company has robust product development and manufacturing capabilities, and is able to bring new products to market independently, or in partnership with other industry players.

Christophe Bancel, CEO of TISSIUM, said: “The announcement of our rebranding to TISSIUM is an exciting milestone in the company’s development. When the co-founders started the company in 2013, we had an idea that the technology that we would offer to the medical community would be the start of innovation in a space that hadn’t seen significant changes in many years. Now, we feel we have an opportunity to offer a full platform of biomorphic programmable polymers to fundamentally change the way the industry thinks about tissue reconstruction, and it’s important that the brand reflect our intent.

The company’s corporate website has also been relaunched as part of this rebranding effort—please visit www.TISSIUM.com to learn more about TISSIUM.
