Novel Approach

GenCure scientists will use the lab for developing groundbreaking treatments from cells and tissues that previously were discarded.

New Treatments

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.

Driving Research

GenCure will be a key provider of stem cells for researchers, manufacturing them on the large scale necessary for human clinical trials and production.

Future Healing

With research help, stem cell therapy breakthroughs are imminent for multiple conditions:
 Alzheimer’s disease
 Spinal cord injuries
 Type 2 diabetes
 Heart disease
 Cancer
