FAQs

I need cell therapy business guidance, but am unsure where to begin. What should I do?

You're not alone. Commercialization of cellular therapies is a new area on many fronts. Many of our clients come to us with undefined questions. There is no charge for a non-confidential discussion to help you assess your needs. Please feel free to contact us at any point in your decision making process. Also, DCi works closely — and partners with — many other consultants in the regenerative medicine area. We're able to tap into vast resources to assist our clients. And if for some reason we're not able to accommodate your immediate needs, we can recommend other experts who might be able to assist you.
