The group is looking for pharmaceutical companies interested in manufacturing an active ingredient for the formulation of a leishmanicidal drug based on these compounds. The group proposes the signing of a patent license agreement, a collaboration agreement or a commercial agreement with technical

Universidad de Alcalá-OTRI posted this:Carbosilane dendrimers and their use as antiviralsThe research group in "Dendrimers for Biomedical Applications" of the University of Alcalá presents these highly branched macromolecules synthesized from a polyfunctional nucleus, of carbosilane structure and functionalized in its periphery with anionic groups that give the macromolecule a negative net charge. In addition, the invention relates to the use of the dendrimers as an antimicrobial and the process for obtaining them. The group seeks to reach collaboration agreements, licensing or commercial agreements with technical assistance, with companies in the biotechnology, pharmaceutical and biomedicine sectors in general.

Daphnia sp., requires its counting and characterization to evaluate several parameters. Currently the score is performed by technicians by direct observation (“naked eye”) of exposed organisms. This process is slow, tiring and subject to human error, and it can have adverse effects on visual acuity of the technical staff involved in the count. This patent, developed in a Portuguese university, solves the problem by counting and automating this process with gains in runtime and accuracy and enabling quick and efficient recount. It follows the optimization of the process of assessing the exposure to contaminants in tests that require the use of small-sized organizations. The university is looking for companies interested in the production and commercialization of this industrial equipment.
