Dear Foregen Supporters,
Welcome back to our most recent newsletter. We have some important updates for you, and an overview of the best parts of October so far.
What’s Happened Since Last Time
- The 3-D medical animator we're working with has made progress and we would like to share some of the steps in the process when we have some ready. We’ve also narrowed down the choices of studios to assist in designing the website pages and keep a consistent look.
- If you haven’t seen it yet, check out this video released in our last newsletter with a number of our most recent updates about all aspects of our work.
- We are looking to host an AMA on Reddit as a part of the larger project to speak with individual supporters, as highlighted last newsletter. This will allow those that we are unable to speak with to ask questions and give feedback. We will set a date, time, and rules, and it will be announced via the newsletter as well as across social media.
- For the month of October so far we reached a total of $4,416 in donations, which helps us move forward with the next parts of our mission! Be sure to inform other activists, friends and family about Foregen and the science we’re pursuing to one day help provide genital integrity to men around the world. Our overall total to date is $369,747 - Let’s keep it up.
Tell Me Something Interesting
- This new article details research recently published in Journal of Tissue Engineering, Part C: Methods, where researchers “have developed a method to 3-D print cells to produce human tissue such as ligaments and tendons to greatly improve a patient’s recovery. A person with a badly damaged ligament, tendon, or ruptured disc could simply have a new replacement tissue and ultimately implanted in the damaged area.”
- This piece details how “biomedical engineers have demonstrated that, by injecting an elastic biomaterial made from ordered and disordered proteins, a scaffold can form that responds to temperature and easily integrates into tissue [...][which] will allow researchers to precisely control the properties of new biomaterials for applications in tissue engineering and regenerative medicine.”
