Betalin Therapeutics licensed the novel EMP technology developed at The Hebrew University of Jerusalem, Israel, in an exclusive worldwide agreement in 2015. The Hebrew University continues to partner with Betalin Therapeutics to support the research and development.
Based on promising in vitro results and preliminary in vivo results, Betalin Therapeutics has recently submitted a pre-pre-IND (Investigational New Drug) application to the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). Following the FDA's positive response, Betalin Therapeutics is now preparing the pre-IND meeting on its way towards IND submission.
Betalin Therapeutics is currently raising funding in order to further optimize the therapy in animal models, complete submission of the IND application to the FDA, and proceed to clinical trials. Betalin Therapeutics was recently awarded a competitive matching grant from the Office of the Chief Scientist, doubling the value of investments made at this stage.

- Stem CellsStem cells are self-renewing cells that have the potential to become multiple different cell types in the body. Stem cells are found in developing embryos. Adult stem cells maintain and repair tissues throughout life. Induced pluripotent stem cells are a type of stem cell derived from adult cells that are reprogrammed in the lab.
- Regenerative medicineBranch of research dealing with the process of replacing, engineering, or regenerating biological units to (re-)establish normal function
