Phase 1 of RegMed XB begins

Scientists and physicians from the universities and involved institutes of Utrecht, Maastricht, Leiden and Eindhoven will be working together. A partnership with the business community provides the basis for a new, high-quality industry within our national borders. This is why the Province of Utrecht, the Province of Noord-Brabant, the Province of Limburg and the municipality of Leiden are now expressing their intention to support the partnership. 

Phase 1 of RegMed XB begins

On 05 July 2016, many of the partners met to initiate Phase 1. RegMed XB brings together scientists and physicians from universities, regional governments, and businesses for common goals in regenerative medicine.

Health foundations collaborate in Phase 1

Mark Seubert (Scientific Council Member, DON Foundation) and Hanneke Dessing (Director, Diabetes Fonds) discuss the cooperation of their respective foundations in RegMed XB. Thanks to their support, one of the Phase 1 projects is to develop a new therapy against type 1 diabetes.
