Dr. Robert Soler Rich

Medical Director of the Institute of Regenerative Tissue Therapy (ITRT) at Teknon Medical Centre.

Together with Dr. Lluís Orozco Delclós, Dr. Robert Soler Rich co-directs the Institute of Regenerative Tissue Therapy at Teknon Medical Centre, a pioneering unit that uses adult stem cells selected and cultivated with GMP (Good Manufacturing Practice) procedures in cell therapy laboratories. The unit leads worldwide clinical trials that have been published in prestigious scientific journals, the results of which confirm the efficacy of using adult stem cells to regenerate joint cartilage in arthrosis or in intervertebral lumbar discs. In collaboration with different public and private institutions, it designs and develops national and international studies aimed at generating scientific evidence of the therapeutic value of adult stem cells, as well as the safety of their use.
