Moneycab.com: Ms. Marino, Cutiss has developed a revolutionary method to produce human skin in the lab. How did that happen?
In 2001 the Tissue Biology Reseach Unit, a research lab of the Department of Surgery of the University Children’s hospital in Zurich started working on skin bio-engineering to solve an unmet clinical need mostly connected to burns. Unfortunately, standard of care to treat large, deep burns is scarce and ineffective leading very often to highly debilitating, disfiguring scarring. Via personalized skin tissue bio-engineering one could permanently treat large wound surfaces and minimize the scarring.

Start-up suisse créée en 2017 et spécialisée dans la biotechnologie, CUTISS AG est une jeune entreprise adossée à l’Université de Zürich. Son application ? La peau ! Spécialisée dans la reconstitution de peau sur-mesure, Cutiss travaille main dans la main avec des hôpitaux européens, Suisses, Hollandais et Anglais, et travaille déjà à son futur : démocratiser la fabrication de peau pour les grands blessés et pour toutes les autres personnes ayant besoin d’une greffe de peau.
The newly founded
UZH Life Science Fund invests around one million francs in the
Spin-off Cutiss. The University
Zurich is thus breaking new ground.
The goal is to develop the skin substitutes of the young company quickly to make them ready for the market.
