Pregenerate is a young startup based on the lively Vienna Biocenter Campus surrounded by 12 other start up companies. At Pregenerate we are revolutionizing arthritis treatment with our organ-on-a-chip platform. This technology will ultimately allow us to stratify patients into targeted treatment subgroups, and even to tell each clinical patient what the best treatment is for their specific arthritis needs directly. Our device is also poised to save pharmaceutical companies billions of dollars and improve the success rates of their drugs to market, partly because we can use human cells to replace animal testing in pharmaceutical research for arthritis treatments.
