Welcome to SIRM:
the new institute for regenerative medicine
The Swiss Institute for Regenerative Medicine (SIRM), is the first swiss research facility entirely dedicated to regenerative medicine.
It was established in 2013 in the southern and italian speaking Ticino Canton, and it is fully committed to unleash the enormous potential of human body regeneration by supporting the development of next-gen therapies and cures that will shape the medicine of the future.
Regenerative medicine is a game-changing area of medicine with the potential to fully heal damaged tissues and organs, offering solutions and hope for people who have conditions that today are beyond repair.
What is regenerative medicine
Though great progress has been made in medicine, current evidence-based treatments are increasingly unable to keep pace with patients’ needs. There are few effective ways to treat the root causes of many diseases, injuries and congenital conditions.
The role of stem cells in health care
Cell based therapy and in particular stem cells, is currently one of the fastest growing fields in regenerative medicine. Stem cells are a key component of regenerative medicine, as they open the door to new clinical applications and treatments.
Regenerative medicine: here and now
Even though the majority of people perceive regenerative medicine as something of the future, it is actually here and now. A significant number of regenerative medicine products are already commercially and clinically tested and successful.
