The vision of the Günter Leifheit Stem Cell Institute
The idea to develop therapies from human cells was originally an idea shared with Cardiocentro, Lugano, until 2011 when Swiss Stem Cell Foundation (SSCF) moved its laboratory and carried on its research activity in this field.

The 15 Mio Chf investment made in SSCF by “G. und I. Leifheit Foundation”, Nassau, Germany, allowed the development of a larger project of regenerative medicine, as it included the construction of an Institute, located in Via Tesserete, Lugano, entirely dedicated to regenerative medicine.

In 2022, the collaboration with the Genolier group within SSCF has enhanced and boosted this project towards the realization of this building, which will be active from 2025.


The vision of SSCF is represented in the Figure.
