BioBridge Global has been named one of two Prototype of the Year Award winners by the Medical Technology Enterprise Consortium (MTEC) for work done following a $7.8 million MTEC grant for the development of large-scale manufacturing capabilities for clinical-grade adult stem cells.

The award was presented at the MTEC Annual Meeting on March 4.

“This award recognizes flawless execution – on-time or ahead of schedule and on-budget for all milestones,” said Becky Cap, Chief Operating Officer of GenCure. “Getting to this point with four collaborators is a huge acknowledgement of excellence both for our execution teams and the supporting groups who worked through billing and reporting requirements.”

GenCure hosts Be the Cure on Campus registry drive to give hope to blood cancer patients like Reggie

The University of Texas at San Antonio students, faculty and staff  can save a life by signing up for the marrow donor registry at the Be the Cure on Campus drive. GenCure, a subsidiary of San Antonio nonprofit BioBridge Global, will have sign-up tables on the Main Campus, March 2-4 from 10 a.m.-4 p.m.

Every person who joins the marrow donor registry gives hope to blood cancer patients like Reggie Campbell, who is fighting leukemia for the third time. Campbell needs a marrow transplant, but finding a donor will be an uphill battle for the local fitness coach and his family.

Texas A&M University-Kingsville students can potentially save the life of a cancer patient by joining the Be The Match Registry during GenCure’s fifth annual Be The Cure On Campus marrow registry drive Feb. 17-19.

The drive is in honor of Lou Gonzalez, an A&M-Kingsville student who passed away in his junior year after a long battle with leukemia.

“Lou is no longer here, so this is my mission,” said Cindie Barrera Deleon, Lou’s mother. “I don’t want any other parent to feel the way that I did.”

GenCure, a subsidiary of San Antonio-based BioBridge Global, works with Be The Match to find potential donors in South Texas.

February 3, 2020

GenCure is working with its affiliate, Be The Match, on a new initiative called the College Partnership Program.

It’s designed to encourage college administrators, faculty and organizations to host presentations about joining the Be The Match marrow donor registry.

The program will provide grants to academic departments or organizations that hold events about Be The Match and joining the registry.

The size of the grant depends on the number of participants in the presentation:

  • $250 for 100 participants
  • $500 for 200 participants
  • $1,000 for 400 participants

The program has given back already with Concorde Career College, which received its grant in October.

The San Antonio community is rallying behind Reggie Campbell as he fights leukemia for the third time and searches for the marrow donor who could save his life.

Finding a donor will be an uphill battle for the local photographer and his family. African American patients like Campbell are least likely to find a matching stem cell or marrow donor on the Be The Match Registry, a national database that connects potential donors to patients in need of a stem cell or marrow transplant.

“We need people who look like us to donate,” said Campbell, who was diagnosed in 2017 with a rare form of acute lymphoblastic leukemia, an agressive blood cancer.

When first diagnosed, no matches were available on the marrow registry for Campbell. Instead, he received a 50% match transplant from his sister.
