Umeå-based life science company Inficure Bio has appointed Lena Söderström, who was previously in charge at stock exchange listed company Senzime, as its new chairman of the board of directors.
Umeå-based life science company Inficure Bio has just won the largest contract in its history.
“It feels incredible! The more large customers we get the greater our credibility becomes. This agreement is a real feather in our cap”, says Sofia Mayans, CEO of Inficure Bio.
Life science company Inficure Bio has been awarded millions by Vinnova to support the company’s development of a model that will help create new treatments for fibrosis.
“This money is incredibly important to us. Thanks to this investment we can now finish developing a new product”, says Sofia Mayans, CEO of Inficure Bio.
Inficure Bio has developed a new mouse model, the N-IF model. Mice are used as model organisms for studying human biology due to the genetic and physiological conformity between mice and humans. N-IF mice are unique as they spontaneously develop pathological fibrosis, rather than it being induced. This pathological progress is therefore more natural and provides better and faster results.
Inficure Bio has signed an investment deal acquiring external venture capital for the first time. The new partners contribute with broad competence and funding – and within one year the goal is to become an established player on the international market for development of anti-inflammatory and antifibrotic drugs.
A few weeks ago, Sofia Mayans, CEO of the startup InfiCure Bio, got an offer she could not turn down. Her successful participation in the “Entreprenour of the Future” last year had attracted some international attention – and suddenly she was the only woman out of eight CEO’s closing the bell at Nasdaq in New York City.
Quretech, Hiloprobe and Inficure made the 30th of March a day to remember for Umeå Biotech Incubator. Beeing at three different events, in three parts of Sweden – they all managed to take home the main prize. An unprecedented hat trick that shows how strong the startup portfolio from Umeå really is.
The business coaches at Umeå Biotech Incubator have collected an impressive know-how over the years. With their inside position of some of the most innovative medical solusions they know how to get a life science company to thrive and grow.
