Dr. Schweinle, an award-winning physician-researcher, has led and managed numerous worldwide clinical studies. In her most recent role at U.S. Health and Human Services, Dr. Schweinle provided her clinical acumen towards the clinical development of a wide array of burn wound product candidates including therapeutics, debridement agents, and medical imaging devices.

“Dr. Schweinle, with whom I worked with for many years at BARDA, brings us over 30 years of medical, regulatory, and clinical trial expertise from global healthcare organizations and some of the world’s leading government and commercial teams. Her addition strengthens our clinical and regulatory programs for investigation into new and promising cell therapies using skin and other tissue sources and our patented CellMist System™ and SkinGun™ device,” explained, Dr. Robin A. Robinson, Chief Scientific Officer for RenovaCare.

“I am honored to be joining RenovaCare, an innovator at the forefront of cell isolation and regenerative spray technologies that has set a new standard for next-generation cell spray therapies,” said Dr. Schweinle. “RenovaCare innovations for the treatment of burns and wounds, and for tissue and organ regeneration, have the potential to help improve the quality of life for millions around the world. I look forward to my new role at RenovaCare and opening new windows of opportunity for advancing patient care.”

She began her career teaching and researching infectious diseases at the University of Texas, National Institutes of Health and at Yale University School of Medicine. She has been published in major scientific journals including Clinical Infectious Diseases, Health Security, Vaccine, and Epidemiol.

Over 70 patients with various types of second-degree burns have been treated on an experimental basis utilizing the technology underlying the Company’s SkinGun™, which RenovaCare has developed as a potential alternative to skin grafting and other treatment options. Sprayed with a gentle mist of their own skin cells, many of these patients left the hospital within days, avoiding generally painful skin graft surgeries and potentially prolonged hospitalization.
