SIRAKOSS is a young medical device company based in Scotland that has developed synthetic bone graft substitutes that will revolutionise the treatment of bone defects and fusions. Incorporated in 2010, SIRAKOSS has already produced a portfolio of technologies that have demonstrated outstanding performance in various established pre-clinical models of trauma and spinal fusion.The core technology was spun out from the University of Aberdeen in early 2011. Based on technology developed from a Scottish Enterprise Proof of Concept project, SIRAKOSS are commercialising innovative solutions for 3rd generation synthetic bone graft substitutes.

About the Speaker

As a research chemist with over 6 years experience in calcium phosphate synthesis Jordan has been committed to product development throughout the early Proof of Concept stages with the University of Aberdeen, transferring full-time to SIRAKOSS at the time of spin-out. Jordan's expertise in material synthesis, experimental design and characterisation has supported the initial product development and he led the development on our 2nd product line, MaxSi™ Graft Putty, and the resulting new IP. Jordan is a co-inventor of two SIRAKOSS patents.
