LifeMatrix is part of the Wyss Zurich start up accelerator since 2015. LifeMatrix is active in the fast-growing field of medical biomimetics and has developed a unique tissue engineering technology to grow human replacement tissues in the laboratory as next-generation implants for the treatment of cardiovascular diseases. When implanted, the patients own cells will vitalize and transform the LifeMatrix tissue into living heart valves and blood vessels which can grow and regenerate with the patient. The LifeMatrix technology has the potential to overcome the significant limitations of existing implants and revolutionize the medical device industry.

The Wyss Zurich is a joint accelerator of the ETH Zurich and the University of Zurich, which was made possible by a generous donation from the Swiss entrepreneur and philanthropist Dr. hc. mult. Hansjörg Wyss. The mission of Wyss Zurich is to drive the clinical translation and technology transfer of outstanding scientific discoveries into new therapies for patients and breakthrough innovations in the emerging fields of Regenerative Medicine and Robotics, and to promote hybrid technologies in these fields. Wyss Zurich brings together some of the world's leading experts to form multidisciplinary teams, pooling their knowledge and expertise.
