Headquartered in San Diego, Aspen Neuroscience, Inc. is a development stage, private biotechnology company focused on personalized autologous cell therapies. The company is developing iPSCs to address diseases with high unmet medical need, beginning with autologous neuron replacement for both sporadic and genetic forms of Parkinson’s disease, and extending across the brain and affected organs.

A leading iPSC company, Aspen combines stem cell biology with the latest artificial intelligence and genomic approaches to investigate patient-specific restorative treatments.

The company has developed a best-in-class platform to create and characterize pluripotent-derived cell medicines, which includes in-house bioinformatics, manufacturing and QC. Aspen’s platform consistently produces high quality iPSCs and autologous dopaminergic neurons and has broad potential with multiple opportunities to expand the current pipeline.
