Spin Out Companies

The original spin-out from the Oxford Silk Group was Spinox Ltd in 2001, which in 2004 morphed into Oxford Biomaterials Ltd. Oxford Biomaterials is dedicated to R&D of silk-based materials and presently focuses on regenerating silk fibroins for reprocessing, and on their applications in regenerative medicine.

In 2008 OBM spun out Orthox, a UK leader in the development of silk-based medical devices designed to repair and regenerate damaged cartilage.

Additionally, the Oxford Silk Group has co-founded the Oxford Bionics Initiative, a programme designed to spearhead research at Oxford University into Nature's relationship with, and exploitation of, her physical environment.
