Bat biotech takes flight

Posted by in category: biotech/medical

Fascinating discussion of how biotech companies (esp. Paratus) and academic researchers are leveraging the unique immunobiology of bats to find new ways of treating inflammation, cancer, infections, metabolic diseases, and more. Exploration through comparative genomic approaches as well as newly created bat iPSCs is yielding mechanistic discoveries that could inform the medicines of tomorrow. #biotech #molecularbiology #genomics #stemcells

Harnessing the unusual biology of bats, researchers aim to turn drug discovery upside-down.
