AxoGen Strikes a Nerve

Posted by on March 6, 2006 at 3:32 pm.

Gainesville-based AxoGen, Inc. has landed $7.75M to help people walk, write and maybe even smile like “Smiling Bob” again. AxoGen’s team of Jamie Grooms, John Engels, Marlo Walpole and Jerry Chang spun an exciting nerve regeneration technology out of UF with promise across peripheral nervous system injuries. Even for this talented team, which included RTI founder Grooms, it’s been no cakewalk to get this far, but their vision and entrepreneurial commitment has put them in a strong position to change the standard of care for nerve damage.

They are neighbors here at Gainesville’s tech incubator GTEC and good friends. Congratulations, enjoy the moment and make a difference in people’s lives…
