To communicate trust, awareness, and authenticity on stem cell innovation and research. By educating through validated information, thought leadership and accredited networks, we bridge the gap between consumers, the medical world and enterprise.
"Innovations in stem cell treatments have the capacity to transform healthcare in the near future. Wideacademy will play a significant role in the development of the sector by building awareness and thought leadership and by creating learning resources to educate patients, practitioners and academics."
Alan Greenberg, Co-Founder and SVP Wideacademy
At Wideacademy we aim to drive awareness and understanding of some of the outstanding work driving stem cell research and its application in a growing range of treatments.
We aim to provide best practice, exemplars case studies and academic courseware, all digitally driven - always available and relevant in context and in content.
We work in collaboration with major technology companies through their Software-as-Service and Cloud capabilities.
This allows us to leverage existing networks to universities and medical schools and to work with companies who are providing the technology infrastructure to hospitals, medical facilities and GP practices, worldwide.
As a digital first environment, our mission is not only to build an education and thought leadership platform which will create information and service flows for medical professionals, in and around the stem cell industries, as well as medical insurers (such as CellPlan), but also to make this information available and accessible to the individual and to the family; to help families make an important decision in how they invest in well-being and increase their medical wealth for their dependents in the 21st Century.
