Coral4Health is a project made possible by the contributions of the European Maritime and Fisheries Fund of the European Union

In the 1970s coral was heralded as a breakthrough biomaterial for orthopaedic advancement. Multiple applications were explored and commercialised, informed by the cell friendly topography and composition which had been designed and built in nature. Wild coral supply for health care applications is now terminal as coral reefs come under sustained environmental pressure with the ecosystems considered endangered.

Our sustainable platform and ethical harvesting ensures access and societal gain to this natural resource, without thread to endangered natural ecosystems. Through this EU funded project, Zoan Biomed is committed to reducing the impact of infection and lowering costs in orthopaedics, specialising in effective, naturally-assembled orthobiologic devices.


Activities over the 24 month duration of the project include:

WP1 Project Management
WP2 Implementation of a Quality Management System for biomaterial production
WP3 Post Harvest Process optimisation
WP4 Scaling up Manufacturing Facilities
WP5 Business Advancement
WP6 Communication, Dissemination
