Histogenics was incorporated in 2000 with an initial focus of developing products that meaningfully improve the lives of patients with defects in cartilage and joints. In May 2011, the company acquired ProChon Biotech, Ltd. (ProChon), a privately-owned biotechnology company based in Israel, which enabled a synthesis of products, technology and materials science by establishing a robust scientific and technology platform targeting tissue repair solutions.
Histogenics’ goal is to become a leading regenerative medicine company developing, marketing and commercializing products in the musculoskeletal segment of the marketplace. The company plans to build its core technology platform as well as expand its clinical products’ therapeutic applications to develop new and innovative solutions. Histogenics leverages a combination of the latest advances in molecular biology and proprietary materials sciences to create products designed to help improve patient outcomes.
