Two posters and one oral presentation at ASGCT 2022 will highlight the development of Aspect’s bioengineered pancreatic and liver tissue therapeutics
Vancouver, BC, Canada - May 9, 2022 - Aspect Biosystems (“Aspect”), a biotechnology company pioneering the development of bioprinted tissue therapeutics to transform how we treat disease, will present on its liver and pancreas tissue therapeutic programs at the American Society of Gene & Cell Therapy (ASGCT) 25th Annual Meeting, held May 16-19, 2022 in Washington, DC and virtually.
Aspect is leveraging its proprietary bioprinting technology, therapeutic cells, and materials science to create a pipeline of allogeneic cell-based tissue therapeutics that replace or repair damaged organ functions. These therapeutics are rationally engineered to be biologically functional, immune-protective, and suitable for surgical implantation to cure disease.
“We look forward to sharing the encouraging preclinical data from both our liver and pancreatic tissue therapeutic programs at ASGCT,” said Tamer Mohamed, CEO at Aspect Biosystems. “These presentations represent the incredible progress our team is making and demonstrate the versatility of our platform technology in creating a new category of regenerative medicine that takes us beyond cell therapy towards bioengineered tissue therapeutics capable of addressing previously incurable diseases.”
