About Us

COMPANY OVERVIEW
Stem Cell Medicine's mission is to develop and commercialize cellular therapies in combination with pharmaceutical products to be used for tissue repair and for the treatment of inflammatory, immunological and neurological disorders.

The Company’s business plan calls for the engagement in collaboration with other companies, research institutions and medical centers. The aim of these collaborations is to shorten the industry's standard length of development cycles and expand the Company’s technology and know-how in R&D, business development, marketing and management. Seeking partneships with companies that have products in development stages and early clinical development.  

Stem Cell Medicine's facilities include state-of-the-art R&D laboratories and modern GMP manufacturing production rooms that, together with well-equipped analytical laboratories, provide an optimal environment for the development of products from inception to the clinic.

Additionally, the Company offers CMO services for products, including solid-form pharmaceuticals and injectibles, for use in clinical trials. 
 


MISSION
Stem Cell Medicine strives to facilitate the leap from existing stem cell R&D practices and technology and first-product development to pharmaceutical solutions by consolidating the existing stem cell know-how and expertise in Israel, Europe, USA and Asia (China). Stem Cell Medicine benefits from its privileged access to world class medical facilities, top research and the large pool of stem cell companies at various stages of development.
