Biointaxis launches a 0.88M euro crowdfunding campaign to finance a curative therapy for Friedreich's Ataxia

Biointaxis is a spin-off of the IGTP led by Dr. Antoni Matilla-Dueñas. To date, the research has been financed with the support of patient associations, the founders themselves, La Caixa Foundation, the CDTI and the Ministry of Science and Innovation. The project, that received the European seal of excellence in 2020, is in the final phase of gene therapy after years of research progress and it is the only candidate with potential to cure the disease at the moment. This round aims to overcome  the critical inflexion point - the demonstration of the biodistribution and safety of the therapy in non-human primates. The value of the company will increase considerably when this data is available in less than 1 year; the financing campaign is being carried out through the equity crowdfunding platform of Capital Cell.

The IGTP is awarded 4 projects on covid-19 financed by the La Marató de TV3

The IGTP has been awarded 4 projects in the 2020 edition of the La Marató de TV3 dedicated to the study of SARS-CoV-2 and the disease it causes. IGTP researchers are leading 3 projects and taking part in 2 more that are coordinated by other institutions on the Can Ruti Campus. All the projects are multi-disciplinary and collaborations between groups in different fields on the campus, underlining how research into complex diseases is more and more undertaken by collaborative networks. A total of 36 projects have been funded and will be financed by the over 12 million euros collected in the last marathon.
