Radebeul, Germany, May 09, 2014 - BioCrea GmbH (BioCrea), the first-in-class CNS drug discovery specialist, today announced that Chief Executive Officer, Dr. Tom Kronbach, will present at BioTrinity 2014, Europe's leading Biopartnering and Investment Conference, to be held on 12-14 May in London.

Tom Kronbach will be presenting on May 13, 2014 at 13:50 BST in the Alsace Room, Mezzanine Floor, Novotel London West, UK.

"This is a wonderful opportunity for BioCrea to present its lead programs and novel discovery platforms to over 30 major pharmaceutical companies," said Dr. Tom Kronbach, CEO of BioCrea. "In partnering terms, we will talk about our two unique proprietary small molecule programs: Long-term acting GABAA positive allosteric modulators (LT GABAA PAMs) to treat epilepsy plus autism; and NMDA receptor 2B (NR2B) negative allosteric modulators (NAMs) to treat depression. Both programs are expected to reach the IND-enabling study phase later this year."

BioTrinity has grown rapidly over recent years, and is now located in London to accommodate increased interest. More than 1000 senior executives and decision makers from emerging and established companies across the life sciences sector and investment firms are expected to meet one-on-one, attend panel discussions and workshops, or browse the company showcases, seeking out their next deals.
