STEMCIS is exploring forward-looking approaches for the treatment of diseases through the use of adipose tissue and its derivatives. Osteoarthritis, urinary incontinence and erectile dysfunction are currently of particular interest to the company.

STEMCIS conducts numerous preclinical and clinical projects, in collaboration with international centres of excellence. These projects concern both the development of new products and the search for new therapeutic indications for existing products.
