Focused on a single goal - to advance human brain health by bold Innovation

Dr. Rene Anand and Ms. Susan Mckay have developed a synthetic Neural Organoid Platform that is a synthetic mimic of the human central nervous system. It is a novel, first in class platform for studying human brain disease mechanisms and drug discovery, efficacy and safety testing.

Booth # 4214:
NEURXSTEM is a specialty Contract Research Organization business commercializing the most advanced synthetic NEURAL ORGANOID PLATFORM available that mimics the human central nervous system. NEURXSTEM provides a transformational approach for studying human central nervous system disease biology, diagnostic development, and novel therapeutic discovery and development. We demonstrate, using iPSCs derived from skin cells, its utility to detect hallmarks of Alzheimers disease from a patient with APP gene duplication and autism and cancer susceptibility in Tuberous Sclerosis.

Commercialization

Neurxstem is developing products initially delivered using a specialized contract research organization model. The company will provide fee-based testing for drug targets and candidate toxicity, safety and efficacy using its synthetic Neural Organoid Platform™.

Neural Organoid Platform™ addresses significantly all the needs of potential clients for disease mechanism research, target identification, and TSE needs of big Pharma in a “one stop” platform that is highly predictive of human neural physiology.
