The Isthmus Foundation

The Isthmus Foundation (TIF) is a non-profit organization dedicated to commercializing stem cell discoveries into clinical approaches for unmet medical needs. Through our alliances we bridge the gap between academic and scientific research and the development and delivery of more effective patient therapies. Our advocacy and passion leverage regional and global resources, partnerships and funding to advance promising stem cell science for human health.

TIF Partnership provides the following value propositions:

  • Focus, structure, and best practices to drive to agreed upon project milestones.
  • Provide strategic and functional management resources during start-up phases (e.g. Pre-seed, seed, and initial funding rounds).
  • Utilization of TIF toolbox (e.g. contacts, expertise, infrastructure, etc.)
