About the institute
RegMed XB (Regenerative Medicine Crossing Borders; www.regmedxb.com) was founded in 2017 as a virtual institute of Dutch and Belgian public (governments and universities) and private (health foundations and companies) partners that are working together to develop regenerative medicine solutions to cure chronic diseases. RegMed XB believes that when researchers, patient organizations and entrepreneurs work side by side, they stand the best chance to bring the most impact to patients and society at large. There are currently four “Moonshots” to cure patients with end-stage kidney failure, type 1 diabetes, osteoarthritis and cardiovascular disease. Beyond its scientific objectives, RegMed XB is also active in public-private partnerships to integrate research and valorization to shorten the time-to-patient and translate research results into new businesses.
