BioMed Elements receives grant for research and development of dermal filler

Nijmegen, November 1st, 2017 – BioMed Elements has submitted a proposal for the development of an effective dermal filler for reconstructive surgery. The grant has been approved which stimulates the effort to research the in-vivo effect of BioMed Element’s biomaterials. This grant initiates the potential of developing an improved dermal filler product which is used in aesthetic and reconstructive surgery. The goal is to develop a filler with a slower degradation which results in a longer life span thereby reducing the number of surgeries to maintain the effect. “We want to thank the government for support on this interesting project and use this support to generate growth for the future of BioMed Elements, the province of Gelderland and the Netherlands”, says managing director Tonny Voermans.

The grant has been offered by the provinces Gelderland and Overijssel and the Dutch ministry of Economic Affairs.
