Leonhardt’s Launchpads Organ Regeneration Technology Showcase January 8th San Francisco

Press Release – Playa Vista, California and Salt Lake City, Utah (PRBUZZ) – December, 28th, 2017 – Today Leonhardt’s Launchpads, an innovation accelerator focused on organ regeneration technologies, announced a technology showcase Monday January 8th, 2018 at WeWork SoMa, 156 2nd St, San Francisco, CA 94105 @ 5pm to 6:30pm (less than 1 mile from JP Morgan Healthcare Conference). Leonhardt’s Launchpads has startup support and innovation acceleration labs in Northern and Southern California as well as in Salt Lake City, Utah and currently incubates 27 organ regeneration and recovery focused startups. These startups and their innovations will be showcased with short pitches on each with followup time for questions. The sessions about 12 minutes each in order will be Heart & Cardiovascular, Brain, Cosmetic & Personal Care, Major Organ Regeneration and Cancer.

Links to web sites, slide decks and videos for each startup may be reached via ; Most of the startups are based on the core technologies of bioelectric stimulation controlled release of proteins (including stem homing, proliferation and differentiation signals), a re-fillable micro infusion pump and a mixed organ regeneration composition comprised of stem cells, growth factors, exosomes, Micro RNAs, selected alkaloids, nutrient hydrogel and organ specific matrix.
