Starfish Innovations is an investment fund and commercialization hub that seeks to accelerate breakthroughs in regenerative medicine. Founded in 2016 by the Leiden University Medical Centre (LUMC), we have been able to build a strong early-stage pipeline of regenerative medicine technologies through our direct access to the promising science at LUMC as well as our global network of academic institutions and industry alike.
Starfish are famous for their ability to regenerate their limbs. In fact,
a few species can
regenerate a whole new
body from just a single arm.
