Accelerator Client: LifeUnit, LLC

LifeUnit LLC, a recent Grants for Growth Awardee, is a privately held biotechnology company focused on the development of novel therapeutics and chemical agents for treating and controlling biofilm formation and other bacterial activities.

Biofilm is a multicellular organism formed by bacteria transforming from living in solution to multiple phenotypes living in a structured, wet organic film. Biofilms contribute to drug resistance, persistent infections and health conditions including Cystic Fibrosis (CF) and Acne Vulgaris (acne), and many others. LifeUnit's product development efforts are currently focused on optimizing a novel class of small organic molecules, and on elucidating the new biological mechanism, that have unprecedented efficacy for preventing and reducing biofilm formation. This line of chemical innovation has immediate applications for Cystic Fibrosis and Skin Cares.
