 International Cooperation on Researching Dementia


Description of the project offered:
CRU Hungary is committed to be at the frontline of novel approach anti dementia drug development. From most frequent brain diseases the company selected cognitive decline related diseases as Alzheimer’s disease and senile dementia. The main objective of the project is to develop lead compounds for cognition-enhancing drugs based first of all on causal and not symptomatic relationship with cognitive dysfunctionalities. The main principle of the project lies on that dementia is a result of decreased synaptic strength at least in part.

Call for proposal title:  N/A


Description of the collaboration sought:
CRU develops novel drug candidates (peptides). With the most promising peptides the company would like to make their animal brain experiments. Within the framework of the co-operation with the potential research collaborator the company would like to speed up this process. At the end of the project the consortium will be able to reach the preclinical dossier phase and
- sell the molecules and dossier to pharma companies having enough capital for developing a novel drug from our compounds;
- apply for a H2020 grant (as we missed only with 0,3 score from the threshold last year due to the low TRL level at current stage).

The immediate goal is to find a partner from India and apply for funding under the Call for industrial research and development projects in the framework of Indian-Hungarian Science and Technology Cooperation (TÉT_17_IN).
