Nanoform: funding from Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation
Nanoparticle medicine company Nanoform has announced its proof-of-concept studies will receive funding from the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. The goal reportedly is to assess the value of its CESS nanoparticle engineering technology to advance a number of drug development projects.
Christian Jones, chief commercial officer of Nanoform, commented, “Too many medicines suffer from poor solubility and bioavailability and never make it to market, not to mention the challenge many patients have in accessing medicines globally. By applying Nanoform’s innovative technologies and multidisciplinary expertise we strive to unlock many new therapies for patients going forward.”
