GoodGut moves to new premises at Science and Technology Park of Girona

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.
