  • Overview:

BrainXell was founded in 2015 by Prof. Su-Chun Zhang in conjunction with the Discovery to Product (D2P) program of University of Wisconsin- Madison and operates out of a new facility in University Research Park. The company is based on the proprietary technology of directed differentiation of human stem cells (including induced pluripotent stem cells) to highly enriched subclasses of neurons. BrainXell provides a range of high-purity, iPSC-derived human neurons for research and development with a focus on drug discovery. From motor neurons to cortical sub-types, we can provide specific models for both disease or normal drug screening. We are dedicated to delivering the highest quality products from both our off-the-shelf neurons as well as any custom service projects.

BrainXell also aims to develop stem cell therapy for neurological injuries and diseases through collaboration with pharmaceutical and healthcare industry. BrainXell’s goal is to make our brain healthy and well.
