The beginning of each year is a great time to get a lot of things in order, and one of those is finances and investments. Many people invest in vehicles like index funds that spread their money across a large number of companies, and often don’t keep track of where their money goes. At the same time, many savvy, do-it-yourself investors want to know exactly where their money is and what it helps to advance.
At BIOLIFE4D, we are using investments to make a scientific and medical advancement for the good of humanity. There are so many factors that make each human being incredibly unique, but one constant for all is the need for a beating human heart in order to live. Unfortunately, hearts do not often get better with age and as a result, millions of people throughout the world are killed by heart disease every year. While humanity has made incredible strides in medicine and science, it has not been able to solve heart disease. We, however, are working diligently to do just that.
If your own heart can no longer serve its purpose, receiving a transplanted heart from someone else is the logical next step. This is where another large part of the problem comes in: supply and demand. There is not a large enough supply of transplantable hearts to meet the demand. If we haven’t found a way to reduce the demand by curing heart disease, doesn’t it make sense to increase the supply?
We are working tirelessly to make more hearts available for transplant by 3D bioprinting them from patients’ own cells, which would also make recipients’ bodies much more likely to accept the transplanted organs and solve another significant medical challenge. There are a number of steps we need to take in order to get there, including one that we have already taken in 3D bioprinting a human cardiac patch. Next up is the mini-heart, which we will scale up to 3D bioprint the full-size human hearts that have the potential to save millions of lives.
This is only possible with committed investors, and there are only three weeks left until our Regulation A+ offering closes at the end of January. Make no mistake: now is as good a time as any. This is also as wide-reaching a cause as any – we are working to save humans of all kinds different backgrounds and from all kinds of different places.
