Tom began researching stem cells in the 1980’s. Eventually, this led Tom to embark on a journey toward the scientific expansion of stem cell research into therapeutic application. In 2002, Tom purchased PrimeGen Biotech, a pioneer in the stem cell space. Since, he has put together a team of professional scientists to further stockpile the academic knowledge of cell regeneration property. Through his work, Tom aims to advance the domain of stem cell research and to improve the quality of life for people and animals suffering from chronic or debilitating diseases.
