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.
StemBioSys has developed technologies, methods and products to provide a more natural cell culture environment. Our core technology is a natural cell culture substrate that is revolutionizing cell culture methods. The CELLvo™ Matrix is a cell-constructed extracellular matrix that provides cells with a natural microenvironment and substrate for attachment and growth. StemBioSys also now has available various primary human cells that have been isolated and grown on this natural matrix thereby maintaining a more native phenotype not seen in cells cultured on tissue culture treated plastic or plates coated with various ECM proteins. Additionally these cells have shown evidence of being more responsive to added growth factors and cytokines than the same cells grown on foreign substrates (e.g. tissue culture treated plastic or ECM coated plates).
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 CELLvo™ platform products.
University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio
The company’s scientific founder, and co-inventor on the licensed technology, Dr. Xiao-Dong Chen, is a Professor at the University and continues his research in stem cell and matrix biology and serves as a consultant for the company.
University of Texas at San Antonio
The company has contracted with the laboratories of Dr. John McCarrey, Director, San Antonio Cellular Therapeutics Institute, to perform various characterization and competitive product analyses for the company.
Massachusetts Institute of Technology
StemBioSys entered into a sponsored research agreement with MIT and the laboratories of Robert Langer and Dan Anderson pursuant to which we have collaborated to gain insights into the mechanism of action of the company’s bone marrow stromal cell derived extracellular matrix in the isolation and expansion of human stem cells.
