BlueRock Therapeutics was founded in 2016 when Versant Ventures, a top-tier venture capital firm, and global pharmaceutical giant Bayer AG provided $225 million in one of the largest-ever Series A financings in biotech history.Driven by a mission to develop regenerative medicines for intractable diseases, and initially focusing on the work of two McEwen Stem Cell Institute Scientists, BlueRock Therapeutics is advancing a novel Cell+Gene platform to develop, manufacture and deliver cell-based therapies.
The work of Dr. Gordon Keller and Dr. Michael Laflamme is part of BlueRock's first efforts to commercialize an approach to regenerating heart muscle in patients who have had a heart attack or suffer from chronic heart failure. The potential of cell therapy for regenerative medicines has been recognized for decades. However, the complexity of manufacturing cells that are suitable for use in patients at clinical scale has hindered development — until now. Using the latest in molecular biology technologies and manufacturing approaches, BlueRock is poised to overcome these hurdles.
