Update from the Foregen Labs: November 2016


Foregen's Dr. Valeria Purpura provides her second update on her work preparing extracellular foreskin molds that will eventually be used to create the first regenerated foreskins!

Foregen Attends Hello Tomorrow


As we announced on social media last month, Foregen was invited to attend Hello Tomorrow, a global summit for science entrepreneurs held each year in Paris. As one of the Top 500 startups selected for the event, Foregen spent two days in the company of giants of science and industry. Like our own organisation, Hello Tomorrow was founded as a non-profit, and with a single goal in mind: to bridge the gap between early, pioneering scientific ventures (like ours!) and the industrial support that can ensure their success. For two days, the “perfect storm of good things” takes hold in Paris, where young startups, maturing businesses, daring scientists, academics, and experienced investors, ready with laminated name tags, unlimited espresso, and a seamless weaving of French and English, come together to support the truly innovative in science.

Foregen Visits Wake Forest’s Institute for Regenerative Medicine


Two weeks ago, our social media leader Eric Cunningham and I went down to Winston-Salem, North Carolina to Wake Forest’s annual Regenerative Medicine Essentials conference. At the conference, top experts in the field of regenerative medicine talked about all aspects of our work, from what biomaterials are most effective for different indications, to various enabling technologies, to regulatory hurdles and common financing pitfalls to be weary of when running a regenerative medicine company.

It was a well-spent week. Eric and I got to speak with the one and only Dr. Anthony Atala – known as the godfather of regenerative medicine, and also a urological surgeon working on the first regenerated penises to be transplanted in a clinical trial in the near future.
