Mesyntheses is a medical device company founded in 2007 by Brian Ward, former veterinarian and head of NZBio. His product is a new type of tissue sheet for wound care and surgery - a regenerative wound care product derived from sheep and forestomach.
His innovative product encourages tissue regeneration without triggering adverse reaction to the foreign tissue. The tissue is a replacement for the traditional surgical technique of cutting human tissue from another site - reducing the number of wound sites for the patient.
Students passionate about medical devices have a fantastic opportunity to learn from a successful company that has gained US FDA 510 clearance for its revolutionary product.
