2018 Winner:
Zoan BioMed Ltd

Congratulations to Zoan BioMed Ltd who were announced one of the winners in the Emerging New Business Category 2018

Zoan BioMed Ltd is a Galway based medical device start-up, specialising in bone healing and repair. The gold standard in orthopaedic trauma operations is autograft, use of which is in decline. This procedure requires a second operation, increasing the risk of infection, adding cost, and slowing healing times. Zoan has developed a natural bone replacement material, using tropical marine coral as the architects. The coral’s exoskeleton and interconnected pore structure mirrors that of human bone.
