At BiosenSource, we are committed to increase the pace of drug discovery by developing novel measurement and data analysis technologies.
BiosenSource has been founded in November 2015 as a spin-off of imec and VUB, valorizing research on interactions between biomolecules. Immediately after launch, the firm was selected for the Nano4Health fast track to innovation, an initiative that is part of the European H2020 program. With the 30k€ funding received as a part of this track, BiosenSource is investing in the development of its first measurement device. This device will allow researchers to characterize biomolecular interactions in a faster and simpler manner than possible today, impacting both fundamental research -i.e., understanding diseases- and drug discovery. At the same time, BiosenSource provides consultancy services, sharing its expertise in bioinformatics and device engineering with customers.
