Humacyte, Inc., a privately held regenerative medicine company based in Durham, North Carolina, is pioneering the development and manufacture of off-the-shelf, universally implantable, bioengineered human tissues to improve the lives of patients and transform the practice of medicine. Humacyte believes the technology has the potential to overcome limitations in existing standards of care and address the lack of significant innovation in products that support tissue repair, reconstruction and replacement. Leveraging our novel, best-in-class, scalable technology platform, Humacyte is developing proprietary, bioengineered, acellular human tissues that are designed to regenerate and have been demonstrated to become the patient’s own living tissue. The company’s goal is to develop and manufacture these tissues for the treatment of diseases and conditions across a range of anatomic locations in multiple therapeutic areas. These efforts, if approved, would benefit people with traumatic injuries, End-Stage Renal Disease (ESRD), and peripheral arterial disease (PAD), and could potentially help patients needing vascular reconstruction and Coronary Artery Bypass Grafting (CABG). Humacyte was co-founded in 2004 by Laura Niklason, M.D., Ph.D., a world leader in cellular therapies/regenerative medicine and adjunct professor at Yale University; biomedical engineer Dr. Shannon Dahl; and molecular biologist Dr. Juliana Blum.
