Dear Friends, For a long time I wanted to combine my two passions: regenerative medicine and motorbike challenges. This January I have the opportunity to do this at the Africa ECO Race 2020, where I will be participating with my team in a 12-days rallye starting in Monaco, going through Morocco, Mauritania and finishing in Dakar, Senegal. It will be the biggest challenge in my live. I have been preparing for this race for months, putting in numerous hours of training and work, but all of this makes me more excited and eager for the experience I will have in Africa. I will be racing to get fundraisings for a project very dear to my heart: 10.000 CHF for an Innovation Grant awarded by the ON Foundation for a research project that aims to develop regenerative treatments for orthopedic injuries that can happen in motorsports. The additional 5.000 CHF I would use to cover a small part of the team expenses. Any additional funding will go into reserarch. I am asking you to donate for my cause and join me in advancing research in orthoregeneration.
For my supporters who do not know me personally, I have been working in the field of regenerative medicine for18 years. I am the Executive Director of ON Foundation, a Swiss based international foundation with the mission of promoting research and discovery in the field of orthopedic tissue regeneration including the use of biologic therapies to drive innovation and develop improved patient-centric treatment solutions.
