About us

What we stand for

Together with our clients and partners wchallenge today’s possibilities and enable the unthinkable. Our purpose is to boost the Regenerative Medicine ecosystem and facilitate the translation of promising novel cell and gene therapies.

As a team we share a drive to promote people’s health, wellbeing, and happiness by accelerating promising cell and gene therapies into the clinic, onto the market and so to the patients. We bridge between cutting edge research and clinical GMP production.

Yet more important than perks and salary: When you join NecstGen the aim is not to have you work for the company but enable you to co-define the company. Join us and find pride and purpose in becoming a co-author of our story and the next chapter of Regenerative Medicine.
