We are very pleased to announce that foregen has reached our first goal and succeeded in raising $35,000! Not only that, but we achieved this milestone almost six weeks ahead of our project deadline. This news means that the initial experiments into foreskin regeneration can finally begin soon. Without the support of thousands of donors this never would have been possible, and we want to thank all of you who have supported foregen for your dedication and persistence.
It is quite a unique opportunity to have the chance to turn a dream into reality. Many have told us that the technology was too immature, or that we would never be able to find the funding for such a project. However, now that we see even more clearly the determination of our supporters, we are more confident than ever in the future of foregen.
However, we still have greater plans. This milestone was important, but it won’t be the last time that we will need to ask for your support. The work this summer is only preliminary – it is important to continue helping foregen however you can. Please look forward to more news about our scientific progress in the coming months, and know that we are already planning for the next goal!
