Let us look at these institutions and how are they helping Invion.
Hudson Institute of Medical Research
Global bioscience medical research institute, Hudson has more than 400 scientists focused on ground-breaking discoveries addressing complex problems in human diseases, including cancer.
PhotosoftTM discovery and development are advanced by Hudson, including PoC studies focused on safety and efficacy.
Invion has indicated that its research partner is advancing translational work into clinical trial preparations, PoC work undertaken on INV043 to study its effect on immune response as well as exploring the ability to work along with other therapies.
Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre
Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre is a world-class institute that boasts the ability to translate its premier cancer research capability directly into the clinic.
The centre is currently conducting about 500 clinical trials in cancer while pre-clinical studies initially focus on high-risk anogenital cancers. Successful studies will pave the way for human clinical trials.
The centre’s expertise is expected to provide broader and long-term opportunities to Invion.
The RMW Cho Group
The inventor and licensor of PhotosoftTM technology, The RMW Cho Group, has appointed Invion as the exclusive distributor and licensee in of the technology in several markets across APAC. The Group has funded and successfully commercialised several unique and advanced technologies.
Invion has an agreement with RMW Cho Group to conduct the clinical development of PhotosoftTM technology globally for treating cancer, with the latter providing non-dilutive funding for the research and clinical trials of the technology through an R&D services agreement with Invion.
