Genisphere Expands Partnership With Lankenau Institute for Medical Research to Collaborate on Nanotherapeutics

HATFIELD, Pa. & WYNNEWOOD, Pa.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Genisphere and the nonprofit Lankenau Institute for Medical Research (LIMR), which are already making progress together on identifying Inflammatory Bowel Disease biomarkers, have partnered to develop nanotherapeutics targeting cancers and eye diseases. "LIMR is fortunate to partner with Genisphere for the development of its cancer nanotherapies,” said George Prendergast, PhD, president and CEO of LIMR. “Given the wonderful intersection of these two organizations, we will have the right tools and skill sets to strengthen the path forward for clinical testing and ultimately commercialization." Genisphere’s 3DNA dendrimer allows researchers to deliver any therapeutic agent (siRNA, antibodies, small drugs) to any target cell. Easily manufactured from natural strands of DNA hybridized together, the dendrimers are flexible, multivalent scaffolds with high biocompatibility and low toxicity.
