Throughout Cameron’s career, he has taught lectures all around the world on several topics revolving around dentistry. These topics included Oral and Maxillofacial surgery, the future of dentistry, and bone regeneration.
According to Crunchbase, Cameron is also the CEO of a company known as Induce Biologics Inc. This company is a regenerative medicine company that is focused on innovative solutions for musculoskeletal reconstruction. The inspiration to start this company came from a surgical technique used by Cameron Clokie himself. This technique was first introduced by him in 1999.
In 1999, Cameron had attempted and succeeded to repair a broken jawbone using a protein known as Bone Morphogenetic Protein. He is the pioneer in using this technique due to the fact that this was the first attempt at doing so. Since then, Cameron is known for this technique and made a step in medical advancement by implementing it.
The technique is done by adding the growth protein to a piece of gel that is meant to replace the missing jaw bone. One the gel is added to the jaw, it disintegrates and the protein enters the blood. This protein then allows the bone of the jaw to grow as if it were brand new. In the future, Cameron Clokie hopes to make more medical advancements using this protein.
