Bengaluru-centered investigate foundation Centre for Cellular and Molecular Platforms (C-CAMP) lately bagged the Nationwide Technologies Business enterprise Incubator Award from the Division of Science and Technology, Govt of India.
The bio-incubator founded at C-CAMP has quite a few incubatees. 1 of the startups incubated in healthcare involves Bugworks, a startup building subsequent-generation wide-spectrum antibiotics to fight antimicrobial resistance (AMR). The startup has now achieved the scientific trial period to deal with AMR via drug discovery.
In the ecosystem sector, C-CAMP has incubated Sea6Electrical power, a startup catering to the sustainable development house applying seaweed to make plant well being bioactive. Their initially product in the market is a all-natural and organic and natural plant development stimulant. The other is an natural plant immunity booster that strengthens a plant’s defence responses to a wide spectrum of viral infections. Both merchandise are natural formulations created to holistically enhance plant health and fitness and plant generate.
In the field of agriculture, StringBio, a startup in the thoroughly clean technological know-how domain, works by using microbes to convert methane into edible single-cell protein for animal feed. They are also a synthetic biology startup making use of patented fermentation technologies and approach engineering techniques to leverage natural and organic waste and squander items to manufacture worth-included biomaterials which include one-cell proteins for animal feed, in unique aquaculture feed, and biofertilizers.
“This recognition is a remarkable validation of the value the bio incubator system at C-CAMP has been introducing to India’s bio-innovation ecosystem. It underlines the significance of nurturing chopping-edge investigate, innovation and entrepreneurship in everyday living sciences in India, and leveraging this science to build societal influence,” claimed Dr Taslimarif Saiyed, CEO and director of C-CAMP.

The bio-incubator founded at C-CAMP, with aid from Bionest, BIRAC, NITI Aayog-Goal, Ktech-authorities of Karnataka and the Ministry of Electronics and Data Technological innovation, at present has 40 resident incubatees, 10 non-resident incubatees across India and the globe, and has supported 25 graduated incubatees in excess of the several years. C-CAMP also promotions with the deep-science bio entrepreneurship ecosystem in India with quite a few portfolio innovations in the field of healthcare, agriculture, and the atmosphere.
