Sapreme Technologies, a privately-held biotech company developing a technology platform to enable the cytosolic delivery of macromolecule therapeutics, has been awarded a 6.8 M€ grant together with a multidisciplinary consortium including 11 other academic and industrial parties. The grant was provided by the European Union (EU) through Horizon 2020 to develop a non-viral based gene therapy using Sapreme’s proprietary endosomal escape enhancers.
Ruben Postel, CSO of Sapreme Technologies, “We are pleased to see that the EU has recognized the great potential of the ENDOSCAPE project and the expert multi-disciplinary consortium developing a novel oligonucleotide delivery technology for treatment of cancer and haemophilia patients.”
Ernst Geutjes, acting Managing Director, “The fact that the EU awarded the proposal with the maximum score demonstrates the potential of Sapreme’s proprietary endosomal escape enhancement technology as well as the exceptional quality of the proposal and the consortium spearheaded by Sapreme and Charité – Universitätsmedizin Berlin.”
