On March 19, 2024, Tempo Therapeutics, a leading innovator in tissue engineering and regenerative medicine, announced the completion of a $12 million Series A equity financing round, led by Galaxy-Sirius Partners and Johnson & Johnson Innovation (JJDC). Wilson Sonsini Goodrich & Rosati has represented Tempo Therapeutics since its inception as a spinout from UCLA and currently represents the company on all legal matters.
