Toleranzia takes part in a research consortium that has been granted support from the Swedish Knowledge Foundation
9 May - 2022
Toleranzia AB (publ) ("Toleranzia" or the "Company") today announces that the Swedish Knowledge Foundation, KKS, has approved an application within the Synergy programme for a research collaboration where Toleranzia will participate as an industry partner. The research project will focus on drug discovery targeting inflammation and is granted 10 MSEK in support from KKS.
The approved project application, entitled “Drug discovery targeting inflammation – novel therapeutic aspects on vascular inflammation, thrombosis and breast cancer”, will be coordinated by the Cardiovascular Research Centre (CVRC) at Örebro University.
Within the project, CVRC will support Toleranzia´s drug development activities by investigating basic mechanisms of vascular inflammation in the Company’s models of autoimmunity, as well as the effect of therapeutic intervention on markers of inflammation.
“We are very pleased to be part of this research consortium which will generate new insights into inflammatory processes in autoimmunity and in which we will contribute with our knowledge of developing tolerogenic therapies. Although Toleranzia is not a recipient of direct funding, the project is of great value to us as we get access to external expertise and resources to further investigate the in vivo effects of our drug candidates”, comments Charlotte Fribert, CEO of Toleranzia.
