Scientific and Medical Education/CME/CE Programs

BioTissue independent educational grants are available to support accredited (CME/CE) and non-accredited education programs which are aligned with our medical and/or scientific strategies. BioTissue supports medical education for therapeutic areas consistent with its business focus on the management of the ocular surface, regenerative medicine, and the treatment of complex and chronic wounds. BioTissue generally does not fund non-accredited programs though we will occasionally do so for medical institutions seeking funding for one of their Grand Round programs. Current areas of educational need supported by BioTissue Include:

  • Regenerative treatments for ocular surface indications and procedures
  • Diagnosis of ocular surface indications
  • Expanding the clinical applications of biologics and regenerative medicine treatments
  • Health economic evaluations of regenerative treatments
  • Use of regenerative treatments in preventing post-surgical wounds
  • Regenerative treatments for chronic and complex wounds such as diabetic foot ulcers
