The development of novel and proprietary stem cell technologies creates new hope for treating, and in some cases, perhaps even curing, human diseases like diabetes, Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, inflammatory disorders, osteoarthritis and damaged cartilage.
StemBioSys Inc.® is identifying promising clinical applications as well as collaborators to further develop and license stem cell technologies for research, pharmaceutical and clinical use.
We are currently focused on scale-up activities for our patented core technology, bone marrow – High Performance Micro Environment (BM-HPME®) and our initial product launch to the stem cell research market in mid-2015. Build-out of our cGMP facility with partner BioBridge Global is complete and we have begun to explore therapeutic applications and business relationships with potential partners for other, next generation, product offerings from this versatile platform technology.
We have entered into an agreement pursuant to which BioBridge Global has constructed a cGMP compliant space of approximately 1,000 square feet. This space will be operated exclusively by StemBioSys for the production of its various HPME® platform products.
University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio
