Dr. Cameron Clokie is a scientists and entrepreneur that specializes in maxillofacial and oral surgery. He has been heavily involved in the dental industry with academia and clinical practice for the past thirty years. In 1998, his hard work was recognized when he was given the position of the Head of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery at the University of Toronto.
He later was given a position of Professor of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery at the school. In 2017, Dr. Clokie retired from the academic world and decided to dedicate his time to other ventures. He is currently working at Induce Biologics Inc, where he serves as the CEO. Induce is focused on the production of regenerative medicine and works in details on musculoskeletal reconstruction in order to find progressive solutions to that process.
Thanks to Dr. Clokie’s work, a new technique to regrow bones is possible and being used in medicine today. He found a technique that uses proteins to allow bones to regrow. The protein is morphogenetic protein and was discovered in the 1950s.
Only recently have they really figured out how to utilize it. This was used on a man who lost part of his face during cancer and needed to regrow his jawbone. The protein that Dr. Clokie used to regrow the jawbone can be easily molded like putty.
This is far superior to the previous technique of cutting and glueing bone all over the place. This method is a huge advancement in medicine and will lead to further improvement in regenerative surgery in the future. Cameron Clokie is now researching more on this protein, and plans to test it with goat embryos.
Over his career, Dr. Clokie has had many great accomplishments. He seeks to advance the network of knowledge and has written and published a variety of papers and presentations about regenerative surgeries and bone reconstruction.
He also has impressive ties with business through his 25 patents and uses this advance to seek improvement in bone healing. He seeks to provide other people with his knowledge on this subject and is always on the lookout for new ventures he can participate in.

Before he became the CEO of Induce Biologics Inc., he spent his time working on advisory boards for a long list of companies. Clokie currently has 25 existing and/or active patients that deal with human bones. A lot of research has gone into his work. He has just started working with other private enterprises to share all of his knowledge and scientific findings.
Through strategic alliances, Clockie will be able to change the way businesses can practice musculoskeletal reconstruction. He may be able to work with banks and other financial institutions soon to pave the way for new technology to be used on patients.
Cameron Clockie has conducted several jaw reconstruction surgeries and has been successful for the most part. One of his recent patients, Peter Russel, a senior citizen who loves to garden, lost the tissue in his jaw as a result of a tumor.
Crunchbase revealed that Cameron Clockie was able to fix his jaw by using a specific protein that can transform specific adult stem cells into bone tissue. He can reset a jaw bone skeletal clock to grow like that of a young child.
All of the successful procedures that Clockie has performed is a sure sign that the oral surgery industry is about to embark on a historic change for the better.
Normally an oral surgeon would have to take some bone, fat, and muscle from one area of the body and move them to the area that needs to be repaired, which is quite painful. Soon enough that process will no longer be necessary thanks to Clockie.
