Transforming Oligonucleotide Manufactuing

In the latest issue of Chemistry Today, Andrew Livingston and Katie Murray discuss the challenges involved with oligonucleotide manufacturing, and the role Nanostar Sieving can play in overcoming them. Abstract Oligonucleotides, which have already shown success in the treatment of rare diseases, are now being used to treat conditions with much larger patient populations. However, […]

UK collaboration to revolutionise oligonucleotide medicines manufacturing

Exactmer is thrilled to announce a collaboration with AstraZeneca, Novartis, CPI and UK Research and Innovation aimed to revolutionise oligonucleotide medicines manufacturing. Oligonucleotide drugs work by interfering with how genes are expressed and are now being explored to treat diseases affecting large patient populations, however their use is currently limited by inefficient manufacturing processes. This […]

Proof of Concept Grant

We are excited to announce that Exactmer has been awarded Proof of Concept funding from the European Research Council (ERC), as part of the EU’s research and innovation programme Horizon 2020. Exactmer will use this research grant, worth €150,000, to fund a 18-month research project to demonstrate that its technology can unlock the tremendous potential […]

SMART Grant

We are delighted to announce that Exactmer has been awarded the SMART grant from Innovate UK, which supports disruptive R&D innovations with significant impact on the UK economy. Exactmer will use this research grant of £330,000 to fund a 15-month research project to further optimise its technology, Nanostar Sieving, and manufacture exact polymers at drastically […]

Sequence-defined multifunctional polyethers via liquid-phase synthesis with molecular sieving

Abstract Synthetic chemists have devoted tremendous effort towards the production of precision synthetic polymers with defined sequences and specific functions. However, the creation of a general technology that enables precise control over monomer sequence, with efficient isolation of the target polymers, is highly challenging. Here, we report a robust strategy for the production of sequence-defined […]

New R&D Facilities

Exactmer is excited to announce the opening of its new R&D facilities and office space in the Londoneast-UK Business and Technical Park. The move from Imperial College London to the new premises marks the beginning of an exciting growing phase for the company. The facilities in Londoneast will allow Exactmer to accommodate its fast-growing team, […]
