WHO WE ARE
Experts in Human Cell Models
HUMAN CELL DESIGN
Human Cells for Industrials and Academics
Human Cell Design experts help you deliver better therapies to patients faster. At Human Cell Design, we assist industrials and academic groups by providing unique physiologically relevant human cell models.
TRULY TRANSLATIONAL HUMAN CELL MODELS
Getting better medication to patients faster
Here at Human Cell Design, we are convinced that human cell models are the way forward to getting better medication to patients faster. Our customers in the pharmaceutical and biotech industries and in academia rely on our internationally recognized human cells to generate reproducible data and to make informed decisions early in the drug development process.
HUMAN BETA CELLS, OUR FIRST ACCOMPLISHMENT
Validated by over 200 international institutions
Human Cell Design EndoC-βH pancreatic beta cells already led to major findings published in peer reviewed journals.
NATLINE®: A PATENTED CELL MATURATION PLATFORM
For large scale production of functional human cells
To overcome the current bottlenecks of human cell modelling, Human Cell Design combines human iPSc and primary cell technologies with its proprietary maturation platform NatLine®. NatLine® amplifies and maturates human progenitor cells to provide unlimited quantities of truly mature and fully functional human cells. The produced terminally differentiated cells replicate native healthy or diseased adult human cells.
A UNIQUE COMBINATION OF HUMAN CELL EXPERTISE
CREATION OF ENDOCELLS
Endocells is founded by Pr. Paul Czernichow, Dr. Raphael Scharfmann and Dr. Philippe Ravassard, experts in diabetes and neurosciences. Endocells pioneers the development of a late-stage maturation platform that amplify and terminally differentiate progenitor cells towards functional adult-like cells.
CREATION OF UNIVERCELL BIOSOLUTIONS
Cardiac development expert Dr. Michel Puceat and Guillaume Costecalde create UniverCell Biosolutions. The company is a pioneer in differentiating mature functional cardiomyocytes from reprogrammed human induced pluripotent stem cells (hiPSc).
CREATION OF THE NATLINE® PLATFORM
The first version of Endoc-βH human pancreatic beta cells is created using the Natline® cell maturation platform. Endoc-βH5® is the latest version, with insulin content and secretion fully reproducing those of native human pancreatic beta cells.
CREATION OF HUMAN CELL DESIGN
UniverCell Biosolutions and EndoCells combine their complementary expertise to create Human Cell Design. The new company offers a unique range of competencies in human cell maturation, hiPSc management and medium development.
