Employer

ReGEN Biomedical is a startup company with a small and talented team, that is building a production location for human tissue in Maastricht. It focuses on growing large quantities of robust and reproducible small tissue pieces (micro-tissues) for toxicity & pharma screening. Functional micro-tissues represent the next step in mimicking patient organs and represent the future of personalized medicine.

We are building expertise on how to assemble the micro-tissues into functional pieces of human organs, the so-called macro-tissues. The micro-tissues also serve as building blocks for RM therapies and will be assembled into functional macro-tissues.

Sharing this opportunity in your network would be appreciated!
