They hold over 150 US and international issued patents and patents pending across various clinical pathways, including disc degeneration, orthopedics, multiple sclerosis, wound healing, reversing organ involution, and cancer.
Pete is a seasoned leader in his field with over 25 years of experience in medical technology and biotech development.
