About Our Name

The axolotl (Ambystoma mexicanum), a type of salamander native to Mexico, is one of nature’s most striking examples of tissue regeneration – and, hence, the inspiration for our company’s name.

Master of Regeneration

The axolotl has the ability to regrow entire lost appendages in a period of months.

Model for Cellular Reprogramming

Research has demonstrated that muscle, bone and skin cells at the amputation site are reprogrammed to become an undifferentiated cell type, which can then differentiate to form correct tissue types.

Our Inspiration

Just as scientists are working to understand what triggers the axolotl’s regeneration process, the Ambys team is elucidating the molecular drivers of liver regeneration to advance breakthrough therapies for liver disease patients.
