Title:CEO
Primary Industry:Pharma & Biotech
Executive Summary:Centrose is applying breakthroughs in sugar chemistry to the discovery, development and commercialization of a wide collection of proprietary small molecule therapeutics. While it has been recognized that life’s sugar molecules play a vital role in cellular function and disease, the technical and analytic challenges associated with working with sugars have up until now, hindered the development of novel sugar-based drugs. Using CarboConnect, we have already identified multiple leads that demonstrate enhancements in either anti-cancer activity or anti-bacterial activity.
