Procedure to modify molecules with biological and pharmacological well-known activity. Losartan derivatives with antioxidant properties.

What we offer:
A Spanish New Technology Based Firm made up by researchers from Alcala University (Madrid), has developed a technology that can modify molecules with biological and pharmacological well-known activity, in order to modulate specifically the response of the organism in different diseases, adding i.e., antioxidant fragments. These modifications are based in chemical manipulation, performing appropriated controls of biological response.

It is an important innovation related with hypertension therapy and in the design of the new molecules which are programmed modifications of existing already existing drugs, to which are added important therapeutic advantages.

There is a broad world market of antioxidants (from natural sources or not), and the arterial hypertension field is the area which has the higher support in R+D+i.

Patent granted with reference P200401050
Title: “Derivatives from losartan with antioxidants properties”

What are we looking for:
The research group is looking for agreements for R+D assistance of pharmaceutical firms, supporting them both in preclinical and clinical development phases, needed for the development and final exploitation of the drugs. Subsequently to this phase or eventually in a direct way, the group is also interested in selling the patent exploitation rights of the molecule to those companies.

In this sense the research group looks for joint venture and/or manufacture agreements and license agreement.

Synthesis of dendritic systems of nanoscopic size for applications in biomedicine.

What we offer:
BIOINDEN research group, from the Inorganic Chemistry Department of Alcalá University has develop a technology consisting in the synthesis and structural characterization of dendritic systems of nanoscopic size with applications in different fields of biomedicine. Among all of them, the group launches the development of these systems for the transport and release of drugs as a vehicle of transfection in gene therapy or as therapeutic agents (antibacterial, antiviral or antiprionics).

Regarding the cationic systems developed, the principal innovative aspects are the following:

- They are non viral nanoscopic synthetic molecules able to internalise nuclear material inside different cellular lines. This turns them into good candidates to be considered as non viral vectors in gene therapy processes.
- They are non toxic in a concentration range adapted for the accomplishment of different biomedical studies.
- They present antibacterial properties against gram + and gram- bacteria
- They are able of interacting, in a electrostatic way, with anionic drugs which turns them into drug delivery systems.
- They present a hydrophobic carbosilane skeleton that allows the molecules to cross the cellular membranes with major facility.
- They are soluble in water.

Regarding the anionic systems developed, the principal innovative aspects are the following:

- They have an important antiviral capacity
- They are able to inhibit the infection for HIV
- They have antiinflammatory capacity
- They are good candidates for the production of a microbicide gel of topic use that prevents the infection of the virus across sexual transmission.

What are we looking for:
The research group is looking for joint venture agreements or licensing agreements with companies from the chemistry, pharma or biotechnology sector.

New organo-metallic catalysts for the manufacture of polymers

What we offer:
A research group from the Inorganic Chemistry Department of Alcalá University has developed a technology that presents a range of catalysts based on coordination complexes and organometallic, active in functionalization processes (expoditation, hydrosilylation) and polymerization of different organic substrates (olefins and cyclic esters). They are metal complexes belonging to the first transition groups (groups 4-6) and elements from the main groups (groups 1,2 and 13).

Its application is aimed at the synthesis of materials with new properties (silicon polymers, biodegradable plastics, polyesters) and the production of small molecules with high added value, used as starting products in many industrial processes (epoxides, silanes).

Searching for catalytic processes directed towards the synthesis of new polymers and functionalized organic products (esters, epoxides or alkylsilane), is a topic of great interest followed by the companies of this sector. The obtaining of catalysts that can carry out these reactions more efficiently and selectively, provides a source of profits for these companies since the consumption of material and energy resources can be reduced drastically. Besides, the reduction or elimination of non-biocompatible metal charge of these polymers is essential to industrial scale, being controlled maximum permissible levels for those polymers used in food and agriculture fundamentally.

What are we looking for:
The group is looking for manufacturing agreements and joint venture agreements with companies from the agrofood industry, construction and petrochemicals.

The Pilot Plant for Fine Chemicals of Alcalá University

What we offer:
The Pilot Plant for Fine Chemicals (PPQF) is a research center devoted to stimulate University–Industry collaboration, promoting the integration of new “green” and more efficient technologies in the Chemo-pharmaceutical and related fine chemicals industrial sectors.

Its objectives are cooperative research and development of projects with companies and institutions; innovation, through technology transfer actions; provide technological services to companies, facilitating out-sourcing in R&D and professional training in organic processes, analytical chemistry and biotechnology.

The PPQF building is designed as a modular structure which allows independent work units to work through contracts with companies under a policy of confidentiality. The modules are Chemo-technology, Biotechnology and Analysis and Control.

What are we looking for:
R&D+i organizations interested in developing of new production methods with scaling-up processes, within Chemistry and Biotechnology areas. Companies involved in the development and evaluation of new analytical methods and new organic-based materials. Besides, those companies working on the areas of pharmaceutical, biotechnological, food, environmental, materials and applied chemical industries committed to fostering innovation and quality.
