Details of the Technology Call

Hermay Labs Corp. is a high-tech research organization dedicated to conducting high quality research and development. The company has developed a range of tyrosinase-targeted agents that offer potential cosmetic modulation of skin depigmentation and chemotherapy of advanced melanoma. Skin pigmentation control and melanoma chemotherapy are serious goals for people in all walks of life.

Cosmetically affected individuals suffering from exposure to occupational or recreational exposure sunlight including sun tanning; or experiencing drug-induced hyperpigmentation, look to the cosmetic industry for help. Similarly, the lack and ineffectiveness of melanoma-targeted drugs leave chemotherapy as a last attempt for advanced-stage melanoma treatment.

Therefore, Hermay Labs Corp. has developed a series of compounds that represent a new opportunity to interrupt skin hyperpigmentation and modulate melanoma growth at a major biomolecular level.

The objective of this matchmaking trip is to find partners that will help the company with its Melanoma project. Hermay Labs Corp. has developed a group of lead compounds and is looking for partners who can help test the in vitro activities of these compounds and then conduct further optimization.

Preferences / Requirements for Potential European Partner(s)

The following are the important aspects Hermay Labs Corp. is looking for in a European partner:

  • The ideal partner may be a biologically oriented company interested in new drug discovery and development.
  • Companies interested in new cosmetic products are also potential partners.
  • The company is also interested in partnering with companies who are looking to develop environmental protection and/or environmentally friendly products.
  • Biological testing and formulation experience are two major assets the company is looking for in its search for partners.

About German-Canadian Centre for Innovation and Research (GCCIR)

Economic Promotion Agency from Canada

The German-Canadian Centre for Innovation and Research (GCCIR) is a multilateral initiative for the development of German-Canadian, and more broadly European-Canadian, research and business relations. It is based in Edmonton, Alberta and is located in the TEC Edmonton Business Incubator. The Centre provides support for the exchange of information, development of networks, and the establishment and cultivation of collaborative partnerships in academia, business, and industry.

The GCCIR, along with Innoget, is the co-organizer of the GCCIR Matchmaking Symposium in Barcelona, to be held on November 19, 2018 in Barcelona (Spain). With the support of the Centre for the Development of Industrial Technology (CDTI) and ACCIÓ, the Agency for Business Competitiveness of Catalonia, the symposium is a unique opportunity for all Spanish organizations to connect with Albertan partners to jointly develop R&D projects eligible to receive funding under the Alberta-Europe Technology Collaboration Fund as well as other funding programs to be presented during the event.

From the Alberta side, roughly 15 to 20 Albertan SMEs (small-to-medium sized enterprises) will participate in the symposium for the purpose of meeting potential R&D partners based in Spain. Furthermore, during the event, the German-Canadian Centre for Research (GCCIR), the Centre for the Development of Industrial Technology (CDTI) and ACCIÓ will present the available funding programs that both Spanish and Albertan partners could apply to fund the resulting projects related to the industrial sectors below:

Nanotechnology // Geospatial // Drones // Cleantech // Health and e-Health // ICT // IOT // Materials // Energy
