Digital RESI Europe. GeneCode participated Virtual Partnering Conferences 23-25 March 2020. The goal of a partnering event was to match the fundraising CEOs and the scientist-entrepreneurs with investors and strategic partners that are a fit for their stage of development and product set. https://resiconference.com/

New molecule shows promise for Parkinson’s treatment. Recent research in mouse models suggests that a new molecule might be able to tap into key neurochemical mechanisms and help treat Parkinson’s disease.

The summary of our findings written by simple language can be found in the press release from Parkinson’s UK. A promising molecule, called BT13, has offered hope for a new treatment that could stop or slow Parkinson’s, something no treatment can currently do. https://www.parkinsons.org.uk/news/bt13-molecule-offers-hope-halting-parkinsons

Our first paper describing the effects of a small molecule GDNF mimetic, a compound called BT13, in cell-based model of Parkinson’s and in vivo was published last week at the Journal of Movement Disorders! https://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/abs/10.1002/mds.27943

GeneCode was selected to present PD development at the 17th edition of the Tech Tour 2019 Nordic Venture Forum in Copenhagen, 30th- 31st October. The competition was very strong, with over 140+ applications and 500 individual company assessments. https://techtour.com/events/2019/10/event-nordic-venture-forum-2019.html?pageId=3065876

GeneCode participated UTILE Brokerage, Partnering and Networking Event in Trieste on the 16-18 October. Workshop offered exciting opportunity to meet potential investors and partners, show achievements, network, engage, and enhance business prospects. https://techtour.com/events/2019/10/event-utile-brokerage-investment-and-partnering-event.html 

GeneGode participated UTILE Partnering Summit on 11 July in London. About 1200 projects were reviewed and only a small percentage of those were scored highly in terms of potential for use of results or commercialization had opportunity to participate and make presentation https://www.eventbrite.com/e/utile-partnering-summit-london-registration-63154755574

We have recently published a peer-review article on GDNF mimetics in pain (07.07.17) : Sidorova et al., 2017. A Novel Small Molecule GDNF Receptor RET Agonist, BT13, Promotes Neurite Growth from Sensory Neurons in Vitro and Attenuates Experimental Neuropathy in the Rat. Front. Pharmacol., 21 June 2017, Volume 8, Article 365, https://doi.org/10.3389/fphar.2017.00365 (link: http://journal.frontiersin.org/article/10.3389/fphar.2017.00365/full)

We have also published a paper on a preprint server called BioRxiv (01.07.17). Bespalov et al., 2016. Novel agonist of GDNF family ligand receptor RET for the treatment of experimental neuropathy. BioRxiv. doi: https://doi.org/10.1101/061820. (link: http://www.biorxiv.org/content/early/2016/07/04/061820)

The newest Genecode’s science article about Parkinson (19.02.17)
The newest Genecode’s science article about Parkinson was published on Ferbruary 2017  in UK ADJACENT Government journal wherebrain the neurodegenerative diseases were the highlighted topic. In our article Protecting and restoring dopaminergic nerve cells in Parkinson’s disease you can read more closely about how with protection and restoration of dopaminergic neurons by small molecule GDNFmimetics, Genecode has established the GDNF receptor as a druggable target.
