Academic Background

Mr Tayton has been heavily involved in cutting edge research throughout his training. He has published over 20 research articles in top journals.

He has held a full time research position at the University of Southampton where his work on stem cells and tissue engineering in orthopaedics, led to the award of a PhD in 2014. He won numerous prizes for the work including the Translational Research Award and Gauvain Prize, as well as gaining a patent for a novel regenerative scaffold that he developed: The scale-up of a tissue engineered porous hydroxyapatite polymer composite scaffold for use in bone repair: An ovine femoral condyle defect study.
