Betalin Therapeutics

Biological micro-pancreas for insulin-dependent diabetics company

Betalin Therapeutics is developing an Engineered Micro Pancreas (EMP) to improve the quality of life for millions of people with diabetes. The company is headquartered in Ramat Gan, Israel and was founded in 2015 by Shay Hershcovich and Shuki Joshua Hershcovich.



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.
