Bengaluru-based analysis basis Centre for Mobile and Molecular Platforms (C-CAMP) lately bagged the Nationwide Know-how Enterprise Incubator Award from the Division of Science and Know-how, Authorities of India.
The bio-incubator established at C-CAMP has a number of incubatees. One of many startups incubated in healthcare consists of Bugworks, a startup growing next-generation broad-spectrum antibiotics to fight antimicrobial resistance (AMR). The startup has now reached the scientific trial section to deal with AMR by drug discovery.
Within the setting sector, C-CAMP has incubated Sea6Energy, a startup catering to the sustainable improvement house utilizing seaweed to provide plant well being bioactive. Their first product out there is a pure and natural plant development stimulant. The opposite is an natural plant immunity booster that strengthens a plant’s defence responses to a broad spectrum of viral infections. Each merchandise are pure formulations designed to holistically enhance plant well being and plant yield.
Within the area of agriculture, StringBio, a startup within the clear expertise area, makes use of micro organism to transform methane into edible single-cell protein for animal feed. They’re additionally an artificial biology startup utilizing patented fermentation expertise and course of engineering strategies to leverage natural waste and waste merchandise to fabricate value-added biomaterials together with single-cell proteins for animal feed, particularly aquaculture feed, and biofertilizers.
“This recognition is an incredible validation of the worth the bio incubator program at C-CAMP has been including to India’s bio-innovation ecosystem. It underlines the significance of nurturing cutting-edge analysis, innovation and entrepreneurship in life sciences in India, and leveraging this science to create societal impression,” mentioned Dr Taslimarif Saiyed, CEO and director of C-CAMP.
