Articles lauding and substantiating InvivoSciences’ research, products and technological advancements have been published in more than a dozen recognized and highly credible scientific journals over the last 10+ years. One of our co-founders, Tetsuro Wakatsuki, has contributed to the research and to the subsequent resulting articles, and has become one of the world’s most recognized scientists in the area of cell construct technology.
