We are here to help reduce the environmental footprint of aviation and heavy goods transport through a reliable supply of sustainable fuels. In doing so, we want to play our part in creating a more sustainable future for travellers, companies and people everywhere.
The firm runs a state of the art research facility in what is now coronavirus central: New York City, and has not stopped work throughout the outbreak of the pandemic. Even without its COVID 19-related work, Hemogenyx Pharmaceuticals interests us because of its expertise in stem cell-related solutions for severe blood diseases and its focus on pre-clinical stage medicines and treatments for autoimmune diseases.
Autoimmune conditions such as lupus, type 1 diabetes and multiple sclerosis are unfortunately on the rise. There is no good explanation as to why, but this type of disease is about three times more common now than only a few decades ago, and yet is fairly costly to treat because it requires life-long medication.
Hemogenyx Pharmaceuticals already has good links with the rest of the biotech industry and is collaborating with partners like Johnson and Johnson, the University of Oxford and LakeParma on various projects. This will position it as an interesting investment not only in the short term but also once the corona dust has settled.
