Our Cause: GenCure Applied Research and Development Lab
Supporting new stem cell therapies that are driving the future of medicine
Proceeds from the Red and White Ball will go toward an applied research and development laboratory in GenCure focused on providing hope for patients with conditions being targeted by stem cell research.
GenCure scientists will use the lab for developing groundbreaking treatments from cells and tissues that previously were discarded.
GenCure scientists are coming up with new treatments for serious burns, as well as the skin ulcers that plague patients with type 2 diabetes.
By the Numbers
More than 1 in 7 Bexar County residents have been diagnosed with type 2 diabetes. A quarter of diabetics experience non-healing wounds, which often lead to amputations.
Bridging the Gap
The lab’s facilities and GenCure’s expertise will support researchers in overcoming obstacles to moving lifesaving stem cell treatments from theory to medical practice.
GenCure will be a key provider of stem cells for researchers, manufacturing them on the large scale necessary for human clinical trials and production.
With research help, stem cell therapy breakthroughs are imminent for multiple conditions:
Spinal cord injuries
Type 2 diabetes
