Management Team

Dr. Christoph Ganss

Physician, CEO and founder

Dr. med. Christoph Ganss, committed doctor and entrepreneur, has many years of experience in surgical disciplines. He acquired his sound knowledge and up-to-date medical and scientific skills both at home and abroad.

Coming from a family of business owners, Dr. Ganss was fascinated from the outset by the interplay between science and business. In 2003, he set up RHEACELL's parent company, TICEBA - the world's first tissue bank for skin stem cells and now a leading biopharmaceutical company - at the Heidelberg Technology Park.

I am fascinated by what we and the entire RHEACELL team – a daughter company of TICEBA - have achieved together in such a short space of time: from research through clinical trials to a marketing authorization with the focus on drug development.
