Redbiotec has successfully upgraded its infrastructure adding additional labs to biosafety level 2 plus (BSL-2+). This is an important step for Redbiotec, as our company is now allowed, among others, to make all the needed genetic engineering of our bacteria of interest such as E. coli and Salmonella as well as oncolytic viruses in-house. Together with the ongoing fruitful partnerships with leading research organizations globally, Redbiotec has a strong position in combining microorganims to fight cancer. The main medical application of Redbiotec’s cancer program is to reduce cancer recurrences. Please find more information here.
Redbiotec is pleased to announce the appointment of Prof. Mark Tangney, PhD, MBA, Principal Investigator Cork Cancer Research Centre, Irland, as additional exclusive advisor to Redbiotec. Mark is Vice-President of the Irish Society for Gene and Cell Therapy (ISGCT). As a renowned expert in the development of microbes as therapeutics he is a very valuable collaboration partner for Redbiotec’s current and future work in oncology. In particular, Redbiotec will profit a lot from Mark Tangney’s work on the associations between bacteria and cancer.
