Co-founded in 2008 by scientists dr Jim freeth and Jo Soden, retrogenix has developed a unique technology for identifying specific interactions that occur between a test molecule and the proteins on the surface of human cells. This can save millions of pounds and years of research time as scientists receive faster, more accurate results than previously. The innovation helps researchers understand a variety of different biological processes such as how the malaria parasite binds to blood vessels in the brain, or how a virus attaches to human cells. It is also widely used by pharmaceutical companies to assess how a particular drug works and whether it might have toxic effects. These advances will ultimately lead to novel vaccines and therapies for patients. Retrogenix is based in Whaley Bridge in the Peak District, with a US office in Cambridge, MA.
