About Neurona Therapeutics

Neurona Therapeutics is a pre-clinical stage biotechnology company that was founded by four leading-edge neuroscientists and stem cell pioneers at The University of California, San Francisco. We are focused on the discovery and development of cell-based therapies to treat intractable neurological disease. Our initial aim is to generate therapeutic compositions of a specific type of nerve cell (or neuron) for targeted delivery into the injured nervous system. Based on nearly two decades of research, we believe that particular subpopulations of neurons have the unique ability to integrate and repair dysregulated neural circuits. Our talented team of scientists, scientific advisors, and board directors is working to accelerate breakthrough treatments for patients with significant unmet medical needs.
