Dr. Ryan Mathis is the Vice President of Commercial Strategy at PolarityTE, focusing on bringing regenerative medicine into clinical practice, particularly for treating diabetic foot ulcers and other forms of complex wounds.

Ryan says, "So, we're trying to solve this problem by developing SkinTE, which is revolutionizing the science for these hard-to-close wounds. The product itself is an autologous product, meaning we use a patient's own skin to produce the product.  Within your skin, there are regenerative cellular populations themselves, most highly focused around your hair follicles, that have the ability to heal wounds. And so, when you normally get a cut, those cells mobilize and move up towards the surface of the skin and heal the wounds."

Listen to the podcast or read the transcript to find out how this innovative treatment creates a paste that gives the wound the ability to heal from the inside out.
