Death of Adviser

Collagen Solutions plc (AIM: COS), the developer and manufacturer of medical grade collagen components for use in regenerative medicine, medical devices and in-vitro diagnostics, announces with regret that Professor Robert Brown, scientific adviser to the Company, has sadly passed away following an illness.

Professor Brown was the Director of Research at the Centre for Tissue Regeneration Science within the Institute of Orthopaedics and Musculo-Skeletal Sciences (Division of Surgery) at the Medical School, University College London. Throughout his tenure, he provided expert advice to the Company on R&D strategy and novel clinical applications for its products. He had a wealth of experience in the field of collagen chemistry, biomaterials and tissue engineering and during his esteemed career, had studied how the sourcing, formulation and processing of collagen biomaterials are critical for their effectiveness as functional components of therapeutic treatments for a range of clinical indications.

Dr Stewart White, Chief Executive Officer of Collagen Solutions said: "Robert will be remembered by all of us at Collagen Solutions. He was a highly valued member of our team and a good friend, and we are all deeply sorry to hear of his passing. My colleagues and I extend our thoughts and deepest sympathy to his family."
