“As Osteoarthritis runs in my family, from a young age I have been frequently exposed to the debilitating impact it has on people’s life and well-being. Therefore, I am thrilled to be part of the wonderful team of Hy2Care. I strongly believe that by bringing our hydrogel technology to the market, we will improve patients’ outcomes and provide an effective treatment for cartilage repair and ultimately for osteoarthritis.”
