Israeli Biotech Startup Renewal Bio Creates Synthetic Embryo

Renewal Bio, an Israeli biotech startup, wants to use the potential of cutting-edge stem cell research to help people live longer and better lives. Through this stem cell technology, the startup is on the mission to create synthetic embryos of people to harvest tissues for medical transplantations. In this research in stem-cell technology and artificial wombs, the founder of Renewal Bio and biologist at the Weizmann Institute of Science in Rehovot, Jacob Hanna, has started with mouse stem cells where he can form highly realistic-looking mouse embryos and keep them growing in an artificial womb for several days until they develop beating hearts, flowing blood, and cranial folds.  As per Hanna's research published in the Cell journal, this is the first time an embryo at an advanced...

8 Well-Funded Stem Cell Startups are Manipulating your DNA

Using stem cells or their derivatives, stem cell startups champion the production of regenerative medicine, also known as stem cell therapy, to promote the repair response of diseased, dysfunctional, or injured tissue. Instead of using donor organs in short supply, stem cells are used for stem cell therapy. In the laboratory, researchers cultivate stem cells to manipulate them into specific cell types like those found in the heart, blood, or nerve tissue, such as heart muscle cells. The manipulated cells are then injected directly into the target muscle with the degenerative condition to usher in new cell development. With the advancement in stem cell technology, several medical researchers, doctors, and scientists have established stem cell startups making an innovative impact globall...

Israel HealthTech Startup Got your Heart in their Hands

In the first half of August 2021, an Israel healthtech startup, RealView Imaging, received the FDA 510(k) for its HOLOSCOPE-i holographic system, which provides realistic and spatially accurate 3D in-air holograms based on data received from standard CT scans and 3D ultrasound systems. With the HOLOSCOPE-i holographic system, physicians can view and interact with the hyper-realistic 3D holograms of patients to decide interventional procedures before hitting the operation theatre. According to CEO and co-founder of RealView Imaging, Shaul Gelman, there is rapid development in the space of hyper-realistic 3D holograms of human anatomy, advancing medical imaging for physicians to plan minimally-invasive procedures, which earlier exclusively relied on imaging technologies. In a press anno...

Japan has always rocked the charts for something bizarre, and this time, it is Masaru Tange, the CEO of Shift Inc. Tange is in the news for whipping up a strategy that skyrocketed his company's stocks. No, he did not do it by underpaying his staff. As per the media, hehe has achieved a 5,300% gain in stock by increasing his staff's salary. Let's dig deeper. Are you feeling guilty for underpaying your staff? Do you think increasing your staff's salary can bolster your market value? Well, you should certainly calibrate your underpaid staff to the market rate, but not expect that to motivate the market to shower you with contracts—Masaru Tange's case is enterprise publicity. So here we are trying something untenable—not separating water from milk but iron filings from a stack of sawdust. ...
