Details

Tittle:
Production and functional characterisation of proteins for pharmaceutical use.
Summary:
An Italian start up specialises in the study and analysis of biochemical, biophysical and structural features of proteins aiming at the development of inhibitors. This relates to drug design and downstream specific pharmaceutical processes. Technical cooperation agreements are sought with R-Y-D institutions and pharmaceutical industry.
Description:
The company is an Italian biotech start-up, founded in 2014 as a spin-off of the Department of Pharmaceutical Sciences at the University of Piemonte Orientale in Novara by a group of ambitious young biologists and bioengineers.
The company operates in the field of protein science. In the details, the company provides products and services related to the production and functional characterization of proteins of interest, determining mainly the structure of those of pharmaceutical interest to draw the development of inhibitors.
The company thus provides solutions in the field of protein science, structural biology and drug design for the production of target proteins, their biochemical and biophysical characterisation, and their structural analysis using X-ray crystallography, as hereafter listed:
- Protein production and purification
- Protein biochemical and biophysical profiling
- Assay development
- X-ray protein structural analysis
- Drug design and lead optimisation

Its services and expertise include in silico drug design, lead optimisation and small molecule XRD for absolute structure elucidation for the following market applications:
- Life science
- Pharmaceutics
- Lab-on-chip
- Enabling technologies
- Biosensors
- Medical Research
- Therapeutics

The company is looking for partners - pharmaceutical companies, R-Y-D, Universities and labs - interested in the effective, rational, structure-based drug discovery and development involving proteins, to sign or technical cooperation agreements.
The activity includes the development and validation of methods for laboratory analysis and for process control; chemical, physico-chemical, biological, technological and biotechnology; research, development and production of new molecules and / or new active ingredients for industrial use.
Advantages and Innovations:
It is the first Italian company offering scientific expertise and tools to the study and analysis of biochemical, biophysical and structural protein which are crucial to the efficiency and quality of specific processes of industrial interest and for basic and applied scientific research. It was awarded the first prize of the 2015 "inNOVazione" innovation award organized by "Fondazione Novara Sviluppo" (2nd edition).
It was invited as speaker at SMAU 2015 for the "Filarete Healthy Startups" meeting of the Startup Revolutionary Road project organized by Fondazione Filarete, a Microsoft and Fondazione Cariplo co-funded project.
