SKIN is a leading start-up South Australian biotech company that is focused on delivering a global paradigm shift in burns and wounds care. Through the development of innovative products, SKIN will remove the need for the skin graft forever.
At present, severe burns and wounds are currently treated with traditional bilayer skin grafts, where a piece of healthy skin the size of the burn or wound is taken from a donor site on the patient and grafted over the affected area.
SKIN has pioneered a process that will replace the need for the skin graft, by growing a patient’s own Composite Cultured Skin (CCS). The patient’s own cells are isolated from a small graft and cultured separately before being seeded and grown in a biodegradable matrix that produces bilayer skin ready for grafting over their burn wounds. Over 28 days, SKIN will be able to grow enough CCS (2.5sqm) to cover an entire adult.
Skin Tissue Engineering Pty Ltd (SKIN) was founded by Professor Dr John Greenwood AM and Julian Burton OAM. Prof Dr Greenwood and Julian Burton were brought together through the tragedy of the 2002 Bali Bombings, where 202 people lost their lives and many more suffered horrific injuries. Prof Dr Greenwood led the Royal Adelaide Hospital Burn Emergency Response Unit to the Royal Darwin Hospital, where he led the recovery and evacuation process for many of the bombing victims and their families, including Julian Burton who suffered life-threatening burn injuries.
