Launch of AGC-supported spin-off company

The Alberta Glycomics Centre is proud to support the launch of biotech spin-off company 48Hour Discovery Inc., an Alberta-based company providing services in ligand discovery in unprecedented turnaround time and within a fully manageable costing model.

Founded in February 2017, 48HD’s core business is rooted in a proprietary molecular discovery platform emanating from the expertise and intellectual property generated from the Derda Research Group under the AGC research and commercialization umbrella. The company provides rapid ligand discovery services for any target using its expansive portfolio of genetically-encoded molecules, mining technology, and a standardized discovery protocol.
