“Essent was absolutely critical to helping us move our research forward. We partnered with the team on a shoulder degeneration study, and they didn’t hesitate to find a way to provide us with the tissue we needed. Access to the tissue supplied by Essent represents a paradigm shift in our ability to analyze and correlate the genetic, structural, mechanical and histological changes observed in human patients suffering from tendinopathy. To our knowledge, this is the first time this type of donor tissue has been available to researchers. We could not be more grateful for their support.”
