Advancing Beyond Mainstream Stem Cell Technology

Celavie Biosciences is developing breakthrough regenerative stem cell therapies for the treatment of Parkinson’s disease and other disorders of the central nervous system (CNS). The unmet medical needs for these conditions are significant as these diseases result in loss of basic function or mortality.

In addition to human applications, Celavie’s subsidiary, Celavet, has demonstrated restoring function in serious veterinary diseases. We are changing lives and restoring hope by changing the paradigm of stem cell technology.
