The collaboration will involve the permanent presence of a Farminerva S.r.l. section on the science park, and will join two other biotechnology companies present there (LayLine Genomics and BioLab). Effort will be dedicated to accelerating domestic and international partnerships to in-license or co-develop new intellectual property with the aim to move the development as far as possible up the biomedical product value chain, prior to out-licensing for significant value creations.
Fondazione Parco Biomedico San Raffaele (PSB)
Located approximately 15 km south of Rome in a natural reserve, the science park was created by the Banca di Roma, the Chamber of Commerce of Rome, and the Fondazione San Raffaele Monte Tabor in response to the recognised need to have a biomedical research centre in the Lazio region. Opened in 2002, the park is now home to 3 companies and 9 research groups from Universities and centres working in: Stem cells, Oncology, leukaemia and Immunology; Molecular cardiology; Skeletal regeneration; Cell therapy and tissue engineering; Muscular dystrophies; Biomedical quality control; Neurological Disorders and Diabetes. The infrastructure permits the development of concept to preclinical development based on the state-of-the-art facilities including a animal facility encompassing conventional and SPF small animals and a large animal surgery unit.
Farminerva is a private company, founded in 2006, focused on research activities to reach new advanced solutions in biomedical sector. These objectives are developed by a strong cooperation with academic and institutional centres, as the Fondazione Parco Biomedico San Raffaele and CRISC of the Rome University, where Farminerva sponsors the execution of all preclinical and clinical studies requested by local regulatory authorities to obtain marketing license.
This collaboration defines a platform which promotes and coordinates research projects from preclinical to clinical phases to improve specific knowledge in two particular field: the first one concerns new products useful in early diagnosis of orthopaedic, cardiovascular, bone tissue inflammatory and/or infective based diseases, diabetic and oncological diseases. Further effort will be targeted on developing drugs for treatment of infective, diabetic and oncological diseases.
The other one aims to discovery new therapeutic indication of generic drugs to treat neurological, psychiatric and abuse disorders (second/other medical use), through the participation of CNR IASI researchers which perform advanced statistical analysis on large database (1/3 million of subjects) to identify co-morbidity data of relevant clinic interest.
About 50 free lance professionals work in Farminerva projects to ensure high quality level in management and monitoring activities and significantly shorter time to achieve the marketing phase.

For the first time ever, scientists have determined the cosmic origin of highest-energy neutrinos. A research group led by IceCube scientist Elisa Resconi, spokesperson of the Collaborative Research Center SFB1258 at the Technical University of Munich (TUM), provides an important piece of evidence that the particles detected by the IceCube neutrino telescope at the South Pole originate from a galaxy four billion light-years away from Earth.
To rule out other origins with certainty, the team led by neutrino physicist Elisa Resconi from the Technical University of Munich and multi-wavelength...
For the first time a team of researchers have discovered two different phases of magnetic skyrmions in a single material. Physicists of the Technical Universities of Munich and Dresden and the University of Cologne can now better study and understand the properties of these magnetic structures, which are important for both basic research and applications.
Whirlpools are an everyday experience in a bath tub: When the water is drained a circular vortex is formed. Typically, such whirls are rather stable. Similar...
Physicists working with Roland Wester at the University of Innsbruck have investigated if and how chemical reactions can be influenced by targeted vibrational excitation of the reactants. They were able to demonstrate that excitation with a laser beam does not affect the efficiency of a chemical exchange reaction and that the excited molecular group acts only as a spectator in the reaction.
A frequently used reaction in organic chemistry is nucleophilic substitution. It plays, for example, an important role in in the synthesis of new chemical...
Optical spectroscopy allows investigating the energy structure and dynamic properties of complex quantum systems. Researchers from the University of Würzburg present two new approaches of coherent two-dimensional spectroscopy.
"Put an excitation into the system and observe how it evolves." According to physicist Professor Tobias Brixner, this is the credo of optical spectroscopy....
Ultra-short, high-intensity X-ray flashes open the door to the foundations of chemical reactions. Free-electron lasers generate these kinds of pulses, but there is a catch: the pulses vary in duration and energy. An international research team has now presented a solution: Using a ring of 16 detectors and a circularly polarized laser beam, they can determine both factors with attosecond accuracy.
Free-electron lasers (FELs) generate extremely short and intense X-ray flashes. Researchers can use these flashes to resolve structures with diameters on the...
