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 designed to improve the lives of patients and transform the practice of medicine. Our 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, we are developing proprietary, bioengineered, acellular human tissues that are designed to regenerate and have been demonstrated to become the patient’s own living tissue. Our 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 vascular 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; biomedical engineer Dr. Shannon Dahl; and molecular biologist Dr. Juliana Blum.
