14.00-15.00Listing in London – An Update on Activity from the London Stock Exchange
One of the best kept secrets perhaps is the level of life science and healthcare activity financial transactions that take place via the London Stock Exchange. With political policy seeking to turbo-charge the start-up and growth capital access for innovative companies in the UK, how is the UK capital market ecosystem delivering and evolving?
15.30-16.30Development of CECSi as an alternative to Corneal Transplantation for Patient Suffering from Bullous Keratopathy
Cellusion developed an efficient method for producing a Corneal Endothelial-like Cell differentiated from allogeneic human iPS cells with functions equivalent to Human Corneal Endothelial Cells, and named these cells “Corneal Endothelial Cell Substitute derived from human allogeneic iPSCs (CECSi)”. CECSi can be cryopreserved, transported, and thawed just before administration to the patient. The use of CECSi could provide a means to not only address the worldwide shortage of cornea donors but may also result in a treatment option that restores corneal transparency with a single injection in the cornea anterior chamber.
