Mr. Saverio joins Nintx as the Company’s first Advisory Board member
Nintx and CNPEM will collaborate on the research of natural products as starting points to develop novel therapies for multifactorial diseases (multi-target therapies)
The partnership is leveraged by a flagship project that has the potential to treat a multifactorial disease (multi-target therapy)
Nintx and Join Analytics will build a data-driven solution to map medicinal plants as starting points for discovery projects
The objective of the event "Innovation in R&D from Biodiversity" is to discuss at length Nintx's purpose of decoding the complex biological interactions (plants/microorganisms) existing in the Brazilian biodiversity into new therapies, as well as the vision, solution, therapeutic areas and approach proposed by the startup
The goal of the event is to connect references from large industries that are constantly mindful of sustainable development and preservation of the environment
Nintx, Natura, BRF and Bemol join EMERGE AMAZONIA to map sustainable technologies from the local biodiversity that contribute to economic, social and environmental development
The Radcliffe Institute for Advanced Study at Harvard University promoted a symposium to catalyze partnerships and new research based on natural products
Recent advances in science and technology and their intersection with biological diversity can exponentialize the development of breakthrough therapies
