About ViaCyte

ViaCyte is a private company focused on developing a novel cell therapy for the treatment of diabetes.  The Company's technology is based on the production of pancreatic beta cell progenitors derived from human pluripotent stem cells.  These cells are implanted using a durable and retrievable encapsulation device.  Once implanted and matured, these cells secrete insulin and other regulatory factors in response to blood glucose levels.  ViaCyte's goal is long term insulin independence without immune suppression, and without risk of hypoglycemia and other diabetes-related complications.

ViaCyte is headquartered in San Diego, California with additional operations in Athens, Georgia.  The Company is funded in part by the California Institute for Regenerative Medicine (CIRM) and JDRF.
