Developing scalable cell replacement therapies for the world

Eyestem is a cell therapy company founded by a top-class management team consisting of clinical trial, cell therapy and ophthalmology experts. It also boasts a world class advisory board and we have built collaborations with pioneers and leaders in the space. Our long-term vision is to create a global and scalable cell therapy platform to treat incurable diseases. We are developing a cell therapy platform to produce consistent, quality products over the next few years, concentrating on in vitro efficacy and safety.

We are also establishing processes for manufacturing and controls and instituting GMP manufacturing and GLP studies to cater to market needs worldwide. Our lead product out of the platform is EyecyteRPE aimed at treating Dry AMD (Age-related Macular Degeneration). Dry AMD is the largest cause of incurable blindness in people above 60 and affects roughly 170 million people worldwide. We are currently targeting phase-one trials for EyecyteRPE in the later half of 2020.

Recent Scientific Papers

Delighted to share that our paper describing a unified, GMPable protocol to simultaneously generate retinal pigment epithelium and photoreceptors is out. This represents the pinnacle of our research (so far!) https://stemcellres.biomedcentral.com/articles/10.1186/s13287-021-02134-x

We announce the second round of funding for EyecyteRPE to treat Dry AMD. Especially pleased by the support from our global investors and the addition of Kotak Private Equity-the largest and most sophisticated life sci investor in India- as a new investor https://www.linkedin.com/posts/eyestem-research_eyestem-funding-news-activity-6753302430097788929-PWsi
