SOUTH SAN FRANCISCO, Calif., March 2, 2020 – Surrozen, Inc., a biotechnology company pioneering a new class of targeted regenerative antibodies to repair a broad range of tissues, today announced that President & Chief Executive Officer, Craig Parker, will present at the Cowen and Company 40th Annual Health Care Conference in Boston, Massachusetts. The presentation will begin at 10:30 a.m. Eastern Standard Time on Wednesday, March 4, 2020.
Combining an understanding of Wnt pathway biology in specific disease settings with advanced antibody engineering techniques, Surrozen designs and develops tissue specific antibodies that have the potential to regenerate tissue in grave diseases including cirrhotic liver disease, inflammatory bowel disease, lung and airway diseases like IPF and COPD, neurodegenerative diseases and retinopathies.
The Wnt signaling pathway plays a critical role in stem cell maintenance, tissue regeneration and other important developmental processes. Since its founding in 2016, Surrozen has developed two proprietary platforms to selectively modulate the Wnt pathway for the potential treatment of injury and disease. Surrozen Wnt Signal Activators, also referred to as SWAPs (Surrozen Wnt Signal Activating Proteins), are bi-specific full-length human (IGg) antibodies that directly modulate the canonical Wnt signaling pathway in target tissue. Surrozen Wnt Protein Enhancers, also referred to as SWEETS (Surrozen Wnt Signal Enhancer Engineered for Tissue Specificity), are uniquely engineered antibodies that mimic the activity of endogenous R-spondin.
Surrozen is a biotechnology company pioneering a new class of targeted regenerative antibodies to repair a broad range of tissues and organs damaged by serious disease. By designing tissue-specific antibodies that engage the body’s own biological tissue repair mechanisms, Surrozen is developing a broad pipeline of disease-specific therapies to help gravely ill patients across multiple disease areas.
