Enterprise Therapeutics receives funding from Cystic Fibrosis Trust

Enterprise Therapeutics Ltd, a drug discovery company dedicated to the research and development of novel therapies for the treatment of respiratory diseases, has won funding from the Cystic Fibrosis Trust to identify new drug mechanisms for the treatment of cystic fibrosis (CF).

The funding will be used to support pioneering research, leveraging Enterprise Therapeutics’ bronchosphere technology platform. Bronchospheres are a miniaturised model of the human airway. This innovative model can be used to support high-throughput drug and target discovery and will be used to facilitate the development of new classes of therapeutics for the treatment of cystic fibrosis.

Dr John Ford, CEO of Enterprise Therapeutics, said:

“We are delighted to have the opportunity to collaborate with the Cystic Fibrosis Trust on this important project. The Trust’s funding will enable critical research to be undertaken to drive a greater scientific understanding of CF and support development of innovative treatments for this challenging genetic disease.”
