CUTISS AG, a Swiss pioneering life sciences company specializing in skin regenerative medicine and tissue engineering, is glad to announce the first closing of CHF 25 million in its Series C funding round. This milestone demonstrates strong investor confidence in CUTISS’ mission and progress to transform skin surgery.

The Series C round is co-led by the family office of Giammaria Giuliani, a longstanding lead investor, and a new co-lead investor, a US family represented by Shiloh Advisors AG. This first closing allows CUTISS to enter Phase 3 clinical trials for its personalized skin therapy denovoSkin™, which recently announced positive results in Phase 2. Additionally, funds will be used to advance the industrialization and clinical readiness of the automated machine for bioengineering denovoSkin™, and to finalize pre-launch activities for the commercialization of VitiCell®, a medical device for Vitiligo treatment in-licensed from IBSA Pharma.

Dr. Daniela Marino, CEO and co-founder of CUTISS, commented: “Securing the first CHF 25 million in our Series C funding round is a pivotal achievement for CUTISS. We deeply appreciate the trust and support of our existing and new investors. This funding will enable us to continue working at speed to reach our critical development milestones and bring our life-changing treatments to patients in need. The recent positive Phase 2 clinical trial results for denovoSkin™ have fueled our determination to innovate further in regenerative medicine.”

The company continues to welcome new investors to join its journey towards commercialization. CUTISS is committed to change the status quo in skin surgery, advancing its groundbreaking technologies and improving outcomes for patients with severe skin injuries and defects. The Series C round of fundraising is ongoing, and we invite additional investors to support our mission.

To date, CUTISS has raised a total of CHF 92 million from private investors, family offices, and public bodies, including contributions from Giammaria Giuliani (of GG1978, Giuliani Pharma, Royalty Pharma, HBM, Rothschild&Co), Zürcher Kantonalbank (ZKB), the Wyss Foundation, Yellowstone Holding, Lichtsteiner Foundation, and Cherry Bay Capital Group. The company has also received grants from the European Union, Innosuisse, and Wyss Zurich.
