Houston regenerative medicine leaders host delegation from Mexico
A blue ribbon delegation, composed of representatives from the offices of the Secretary of Health of Mexico, the Commission for the Protection against Sanitary Risk (COFEPRIS) — the equivalent of the U.S. FDA in Mexico — and The National Institute of Public Health Mexico (INSP) — the equivalent of the U.S. NIH in Mexico — recently spent two days in Houston and College Station. The purpose of their trip was to meet with leading researchers and doctors to explore the latest regenerative medicine advancements, specifically those using autologous mesenchymal stem cells. The visit was initiated by David Eller, CEO of Houston-based biotechnology company Celltex Therapeutics Corporation.
“We were honored to host these esteemed experts, who came to Houston to learn about our company,” says Eller. “We are excited about their expressed interest in establishing shared relationships with Celltex and other leaders in their respective fields who are using autologous stem cells to initiate technological breakthroughs in the accelerating field of regenerative medicine.”
