GoodGut has moved to a new space at Science and Technology Park of Girona: equipped with the latest technology, such as class II biosafety cabinets, it makes for easier interaction among the team of scientists and business development professionals.
This change comes at a key moment for the biotechnology company, which is getting ready to present the clinical results of its pipeline of non-invasive systems for improving early diagnosis of colon cancer, Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis, among other inflammatory bowel diseases (IBD). GoodGut is aiming to have these products on the market by 2019.
GoodGut was created in 2014 as a spin-off of University of Girona and Biomedical Research Institute of Girona Dr Josep Trueta by Mariona Serra, Xavier Aldeguer and Jesús Garcia-Gil. “It is very important to us to work in a scientific and business environment in a city as attractive as Girona and be at the heart of an internationally-recognised life sciences cluster like the BioRegion of Catalonia” says Mariona Serra, CEO of the company. Today there are over 140 companies, research groups and institutions based at the UdG Park.
Digestive diseases have a high incidence rate and have a chronic and serious impact on the daily life of sufferers. GoodGut has just launched a new website (www.goodgut.eu), with the slogan Enhancing Digestive Health, on which it presents its pipeline of non-invasive and prebiotic systems for improving the diagnosis and treatment of conditions including colon cancer, Crohn’s disease, and ulcerative colitis. These products are in the clinical trial phase, with plans for them tol be put on the market in 2019.
This intuitive new website provides the user with full corporate information: the company; mission, vision and values; Management and Board of Advisers; strategic and scientific partners; social responsibility, and a page dedicated to careers.
