Progenitor Labs, the biotechnology company spun out of Plasticell in 2011, is pleased to announce it has been voted Best Emerging Biotech at the Oxford Biotechnology Network’s Annual Awards Dinner held at Pembroke College, Oxford. Progenitor was selected from the biotechnology companies clustered within the “Golden Triangle” comprising London, Oxford and Cambridge.
Progenitor is focused on discovery of natural and synthetic molecules that regenerate tissues of the human body. The new venture brings together proven high throughput technologies with a deep understanding of stem cell biology. The key proprietary technology, ProScreen, is a drug screen for molecules that can regenerate cells by acting on adult stem cells resident in the body.
