Cygenica is an early-stage, biotech company working on a unique drug delivery system. Their invention is a molecular nanomachine – CyCa-dds – that can deliver molecular payloads such as small molecules (anticancer drugs, antibiotics, fluorescent dyes) and biomolecules (genes/nucleotides/proteins) into mammalian, bacterial and plant cells. The nanomachine employs a unique mechanism to deliver molecular payloads into living cells without damaging the cells. Currently, they are exploring applications of the new drug delivery system in cancer therapy. In future, the system can be expanded across multiple industries, including :
- Lab Reagents
Cyca Oncosolutions was co-founded by Dr Nusrat Sanghamitra and Valmiki Kempadoo, and has joint operations in Cork, Ireland.
