Biotech Corp acquires exclusive worldwide license to nanotechnology platform
Malaysian Biotechnology Corporation (Biotech Corp) has acquired its first technology acquisition from Nanobiotix, a French start-up company, for an undisclosed amount.
Nanobiotix develops nanotechnology applications for cancer therapy. However, Biotech Corp is licensing the nanotechnology platform for non-cancer purposes.
Nanobiotix founder and chief executive officer Dr Laurent Levy said this would allow it to concentrate its resources on oncology applications while expanding its potential pipeline into non-cancer areas via Biotech Corp.
The license will provide access to the application of high-level nanotechnology in the country, said BioTech Corp chief executive officer Datuk Iskandar Mizal Mahmood at the launch on Nov 30.
