Global Stem Cells Group, Inc. has signed Stemlab.com founder and prominent plastic surgeon Alfredo Hoyos, M.D. to represent the Miami-based stem cell company as an exclusive representative for the Colombian territory. Hoyos is the world-renowned creator of high-definition liposculpture and other advanced body contour techniques.
Hoyos will join Kristin Comella, Chief Scientific Officer of BioHeart, Inc., to combine his Stemlab medical team with her regenerative medicine protocols to promote research and cutting-edge stem cell technology in Colombia. In addition, Hoyos and Comella will team up in 2005 to provide five stem cell training sessions to medical professionals in Colombia, and establish the country’s first symposium on stem cell therapies and regenerative medicine.
Global Stem Cells Group searches the globe for innovative stem cell practitioners that fit in with the Colombian markets. Hoyos will be in charge of all Global Stem Cells Group divisions and programs in Colombia, including patient recruiting through Cellgenic, physician training and certification trough Stem Cell Training, and stem cell equipment and disposables sales through Adimarket.
Cellgenic, Stem Cell Training and Adimarket are regenerative medicine companies under the Global Stem Cells Group brand.
“Our main objective is to organize Colombia’s first symposium on stem cells and regenerative medicine in 2015,” says Global Stem Cells Group Founder Benito Novas. “Our new alliance with Dr. Hoyos and StemLab.com will allow us to establish our brand as the leader in regenerative medicine therapies in Colombia.”
Global Stem Cells Group’s strategy is to expand into foreign markets by recruiting local representatives and distributors like Hoyos to help manage the company’s growth in a specific geographic area. Global Stem Cells group requires any company under consideration for the expansion program to have more than five years experience in the health care industry with at least some experience in the field of regenerative medicine.
In addition, geographic alliances require a commitment to a number of stem cell training courses during a one-year period, certification of physicians, and willingness to organize a large medical meeting or symposium in their territory.
