Clockie’s intellect and unwavering dedication to his job have earned him a seat in the top realms of his career. Dr. Clokie is the C.E.O of Induce Biologics Inc., a regenerative medicine firm that focuses on providing innovative solutions for musculoskeletal reconstruction.
He also has a busy clinical practice in Toronto, Ohio where he does facial reconstruction, implant dentistry, and bone regeneration. Dr. Clokie is the chairman of the Scientific Advisory Board and the Chief Scientific Officer at Osprey Biomedical Corporation.
Cameron Clokie has been the professor and head of Oral and Maxillofacial at the University of Toronto for three decades before retiring in the academic field in 2017. He was actively engaged in the research and development of bone regenerative technologies, which he hoped would recreate the face through bone regeneration when bone implants were placed.
Dr. Clokie attended McGill University where he received both, his Doctor of Dental Surgery in1985 and later a PhD. in bone regeneration. He has lectured internationally on bone reconstruction and regenerative medicine, and he has made many publications on the same.
Dr. Clokie is a serial entrepreneur with strong business alliances worldwide. With 25 US and International patents on regenerative medicine and bone reconstruction, he has been able to transfer his expert knowledge into a business empire. Read more: Cameron Clokie Speaks to Regenerative Medicine
His ground-breaking work in Toronto General Hospital
His extensive research in the field of bone regeneration has given hope to eight patients in Canada whose faces were reconstructed using this procedure. Mr. Russel was one of the patients who benefited from this innovative technology after a tumour damaged his jaw bone.
According to Crunchbase, Dr. Clokie was able to use a particular growth protein known as bone morphogenetic protein, to coax the adult stem cells into generating a new jaw bone identical to the one that had been lost.

This growth protein that liquefies in freezing temperatures and solidifies in warm temperatures was modelled into the missing jaw bone on Mr. Russel’s face and then reattached with titanium rods. Five days later, the jawbone began to regrow as blood vessels grew over the growth protein.
This procedure that was done at Toronto General Hospital and Mount Sinai Hospital revolutionized reconstruction surgery.
