    RIDGEFIELD, CT / ACCESSWIRE / April 27, 2023 / BioMed X announced today the expansion of its collaboration with Boehringer Ingelheim with the launch of a new model for biomedical research: XSeed Labs. The first research project of the new lab will focus on fibrotic disease processes, a key focus area of Boehringer Ingelheim. It will aim for a better understanding of wound healing and fibrosis in diseases of high unmet need, such as non-alcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH), scleroderma, progressive fibrosing interstitial lung diseases (PF-ILDs), and Crohn's disease, to pave the way for developing treatments that significantly improve patient outcomes.

    Using its global crowdsourcing process, the BioMed X Institute will recruit a team of outstanding early-career life scientists to form a first-of-its-kind research group that will be hosted at Boehringer Ingelheim's US site in Ridgefield, CT. The goal of this new collaboration is to bring BioMed X's successful innovation model to Boehringer Ingelheim's main US research and development campus and serve as a nucleus for a vibrant external innovation ecosystem. This collaborative effort will aim to further fertilize the company's research and development initiatives in an effort to transform the lives of patients with high unmet medical needs.

     

    Dr. Christian Tidona, Founder and Managing Director of BioMed X, explains: "The principle behind BioMed X has always been to combine the best of both worlds - academia and industry. We started by creating an independent research institute located on a traditional university campus in Heidelberg, Germany. Now, backed by 10 years of experience, we were able to translate the BioMed X concept into something that can be implemented on a research and development campus of a pharmaceutical company. We are grateful to Boehringer Ingelheim for embracing this new concept."

     

    The XSeed Labs will be managed by the newly founded BioMed X Institute in New Haven, CT, which is also home to the world-renowned Yale University. "We are excited to establish this new model here in the US, which will allow us to promote scientific exchange between all major players in the field of biomedical research," says Mark Johnston, CEO of BioMed X USA.
