Origin of ICAT uitklapper, klik om te openen

In 2016, academic institutions in Utrecht, Eindhoven, Leiden, Maastricht and Leuven (Belgium) initiated RegMedXB. RegMedXB, referring to Regenerative Medicine Crossing Borders, is a collaboration of research institutions, governments, provinces, health funds and industrial partners that aim to develop therapies for chronic diseases, based on stem cells, mini-organs, tissues and smart (bio) materials. 

In 2021, a National Growth Fund application (total €56 million) was awarded to RegMedXB, with Utrecht receiving €12.7 million. This fund will help overcome the challenge of RM, as it will be used to make a pilot plant concerning RM therapies. In Utrecht we will establish one part of that: the Innovation Center for Advanced Therapies (ICAT).
