A New Co: IRBM PROMIDIS, a discovery stage company

Housed in dedicated biology and chemistry laboratories within the IRBM Science Park and fully integrated within the facility, IRBM PROMIDIS (PROtein MIsfolding DISeases) is a discovery stage company focused on finding disease modifying therapies for protein aggregation disorders. With a special interest in genetic diseases, IRBM Promidis focuses efforts on addressing the mutant form of the protein, developing translationally relevant assays which can be applied for screening and/or diagnostic purposes.

IRBM PROMIDIS is active in three complementary and synergistic areas of the drug discovery process, namely the exploitation of known mutant protein clearance mechanisms for therapeutics development, the definition of novel mechanisms to control mutant protein levels/activity/conformation and the development of translational assays for sensitive and quantitative protein detection for use as pharmacodynamic and disease progression biomarkers.

The management team, from Multinational Companies as Siena Biotech and Novartis, has many years of operational experience and success in innovative drug discovery, propelling several drug candidates from conception to advanced Phase 2 and 3 clinical testing. The management team has an excellent track record of publications and is well known in the fields of Huntington’s and neurodegenerative disease research.
