A note from our founder, Marty Smithmyer

We started Americord because we believe that science holds the key to unlocking a future where all families can live longer, healthier, happier lives.

Our core values are rooted in science. We know—without an ounce of uncertainty—that scientific innovation will continue to discover transformative treatments that will improve human life.

And the most exciting thing of all is that we are only at the beginning: Regenerative medicine will provide the tools for treatments that do not yet exist. Currently, there are over 80 FDA-approved medical conditions that can be treated with the hematopoietic stem cells collected from cord blood, with many more being tested and discovered regularly.

Our ultimate goal is to make these life-changing treatments accessible to as many people as possible. We will achieve this goal and more by focusing on our core strategies:

  • Providing unrivaled, inspirational member experiences.
  • Developing a 10-year product roadmap that taps into adjacent multi-billion dollar markets.
  • An unwavering commitment to developing best-in-class products and services.
  • Dedication to empowering our people with every opportunity to reach their full potential.
  • Strategic programmatic acquisition program.

Over the coming years, we will continue to lead the industry by providing a truly differentiated suite of services that help all generations.

We invite you to join us as we revolutionize the newborn stem cell banking industry.

Thank you,

Martin Smithmyer
CEO & Founder
