Details of our collaborative and in-house research journals, books and chapters

We have collaborated with other researchers and carried out in-house studies to research, develop and validate new types of tissue graft and processing protocols. Many of these studies have been published in peer-reviewed journals. We have also written numerous educational articles, which have also been published. These publications are listed in date of publication.
