About us

We are an Argentinian team of scientists and entrepreneurs with vast experience in the biotechnology and pharmaceutical industry, working ceaselessly to improve the lives of patients in need from all over the world, who suffer pain and amputations from chronic wounds.

We accomplished what seemed to be impossible: curing chronic wounds.

A public health problem that involves the suffering of 120 million people that deal with chronic pain, infections, amputations, depression, insomnia, etc. while costing billions of dollars a year in wound management to public health systems. Our gel has earned us the recognition of various institutions such as: Singularity University, MIT (Massachusetts Institute of Technology), Stanford University, Balseiro Institute, IAE Business School, among others and we have obtained the first prize in several National and International Scientific Congresses. As a result, we have been published in books and papers from the USA, Japan and Spain.

Singularity University chose to invest in Untech, among 23 companies participating in the Innovation Hub.
