From learning disorders, autism, multiple sclerosis, Alzheimer’s, and dementia, he devised a plan on how each type of patient could get the care individualized to their needs. His business partner handled the housing portion. Together, they created a unique healthcare network that is not only the largest but also the model of what residential assistance care should look like.
The home that was created to house each patient was beautiful. At first, in 1985, there was only one facility. Now there are twenty and one of the is a new state of the art gym. You can find a chef in each home making sure each patient is getting the nutrition that they need, according to their diet. That is very important as it contributes consistently to each resident’s overall health. Making sure that everyone in the Sussex facility has the proper care can help them live longer. The gym itself was designed to stimulate various parts of the body that does not get enough exercise.

The duality of human life can be rather perplexing in the ways that some people can perform amazing feats of strength, while others present the fragility of mortality. The primary source of human strength is in the bones and the loss of density or malnutrition can lower bone mass that will hinder your capability of power.

For some individuals, they have to make the tough decision of surgical amputation of bones for medical procedures towards better overall health. In recent years, there have been advancements in enabling bone growth to replace the amputated portion to return the patient to a closer state of normalcy.
Cameron Clokie is a prominent figure in this field of regenerative medicine that is bringing a better quality of life to patients after a surgical procedure. Clokie’s method is by creating bio-implants that will replace bone grafts, which will allow for adult stem cells to be chemically entranced into bone cells that will become the lost portion.
Clokie acquired his Doctor of Dental Surgery in 1985 and shortly afterward obtained a PhD in bone regeneration from McGill University. Currently, Clokie is a Professor and the Head of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery at the University of Toronto.
The current obstacle for expanding this practice is that it is not commercially provided on a large enough scale and all the usual sources provide too little of the bone morphogenetic protein necessary for the procedure to have the optimal result.
Clokie has pursued ventures to help find suitable sources for the specific ingredient that is integral to the operation and that answer may be found in genetic engineering. By implanting the human gene that produces the particular protein into a goat embryo, which will allow for the protein to be produced in the milk of the goat and can be extracted and concentrated for medical use.
With Cameron Clokie as CEO of Induce Biologics Inc., he will be able to further the work of Dr. Marshal Urist, whom he worked under for four years, which will bring bone regeneration practices as more widely used method in matters of healthcare.
