Argobio Partners With GeneCode to Develop GDNF Mimetics

Argobio and GeneCode are teaming up to develop small molecules mimicking glial cell-derived neurotrophic factor (GDNF), a protein that helps nerve cells survive, for the treatment of Parkinson’s and other diseases. The collaboration builds on previous work by researchers at GeneCode, who together with Mart Saarma, PhD, professor and research director of HiLIFE’s Institute of Biotechnology at the University of Helsinki in Finland, identified and patented a number of small molecules activating a protein receptor…
