BioReperia has recently joined an international consortium of 10 partners under the umbrella of the H2020-MSCA-RISE program.
We are delighted to announce that our portfolio company BioReperia has taken part in an international consortium of 10 partners under the umbrella of the H2020-MSCA-RISE program.
RISE program connects organizations from the academic and non-academic sectors (in particular SMEs). By linking research and personnel, and sharing expertise and ideas between the innovation research field to the market field, RISE facilitates international and multisectoral cooperation. The scheme promotes a shared research and innovation culture that embraces and recognizes creativity and entrepreneurship.
This grant will help BioReperia to progress and advance their technology (zebrafish ZTX-platforms) towards IVD-precision medicine and drug discovery. The program offers assistance thought collaborative research and the development of innovation for the project. The objective is to share knowledge via international and intersectoral mobility, based on research and innovation staff allocation with an in-built return mechanism.
BioReperia’s innovative technology will shed light on immune-oncology, specifically how dysregulation in cysteine leukotriene signaling contributes to cancer development.
