Seconda edizione del progetto BioUpper, nato dalla partnership tra Novartis e Fondazione Cariplo, in collaborazione con PoliHub e Humanitas.

BioUpper è una call for ideas volta a formare e finanziare nuove idee di impresa nel campo delle scienze della vita aiutando i giovani talenti che parteciperanno al progetto a elaborare, formalizzare e presentare nuove idee di business nei seguenti settori:
• Biotecnologie orientate alle scienze mediche, come nuove molecole e target farmacologici, biomarkers, gene sequencing, immunoterapia e prodotti nutraceutici, modelli di screening per la ricerca farmacologica.

• Strumenti digitali al servizio della salute e dispositivi medicali, come software, hardware e mobile app per: rilevazione parametri vitali, diagnosi, terapia, follow up.

• Servizi orientati al paziente o alla sanità (anche supportati da strumenti digitali), come la gestione e l’erogazione del servizio socio-sanitario e i servizi di informazione e formazione al paziente, kit di screening e altri servizi per farmacisti, strategie per migliorare la compliance terapeutica.

Le migliori idee verranno accompagnate in un percorso strutturato di formazione imprenditoriale personalizzato, fornendo ai candidati un accesso agevolato a risorse, strutture e relazioni dell’ecosistema medico scientifico.

Come partecipare?
Fino al 30 settembre, sul sito www.bioupper.com, sarà aperto il bando per candidare il proprio progetto.

Selezione e programma
La giuria selezionerà i venti migliori team che accederanno a un percorso di una settimana, un percorso di formazione frontale alternata a incontri per approfondire la proposta progettuale e predisporre una presentazione efficace del proprio business model. Dopodiché saranno selezionati fino a dieci progetti che parteciperanno a una fase di accelerazione, di dieci settimane, al termine della quale ciascun team sarà chiamato a presentare i risultati raggiunti.

Premi
I tre migliori riceveranno un contributo di 50.000 euro, che permetterà loro di usufruire in modo personalizzato e flessibile di ulteriori consulenze specializzate e di servizi e attività per lo sviluppo del proprio progetto d’impresa, così da facilitare e rendere efficace il percorso di accesso al mercato.

Prof. Dr.-Ing. Peter Goetz – Beuth University of Applied Sciences Berlin, Bioprocess Engineering, Seestrasse 64, 13347 Berlin, Germany

The field of applied systems biotechnology comprises experimental work as well as mathematical modeling. Aimed at industrial application, the resulting multi-scale nature of this approach, from molecule to production plant, allows and requires the integration of many research disciplines. In our work, we focus on the interaction between microbial metabolism and bioreactor environment. From genome sequencing and metabolic network reconstruction, capabilities of the investigated microorganism are available. Data on transcriptome, proteome and metabolome characterize the current physiological state of the cells in an experiment. Combining the network structure and the experimental data, a quantitative description of the biochemical reaction network within the cells will lead to a predictive mathematical model, the in silico cell. Coupling this model to a model for the cellular environment, the bioreactor conditions, will finally allow process optimization and advanced process control.

Butanol production by Clostridium acetobutylicum is a promising process to replace fossil resources of chemicals and fuel. Solvent producing Clostridia exhibit a peculiar behavior during a batch process. An acidogenic growth phase, where biomass and organic acids are produced, is followed by a solventogenic phase, where the acids are converted into solvents and sporulation is initiated. To make this process economically feasible, molecular biology (e.g. overexpression of solvent producing pathway enzymes) as well as process engineering (e.g. optimizing bioreactor conditions) must contribute to this joint effort. Between the disciplines, a cyclic workflow of experiments, evaluation/modeling and hypothesis generation, followed by new experiments, is established. This leads to a refined quantitative description, which helps to understand dynamic features of this process and will allow optimal process design.

Abstract
We have studied the synthesis of immunostimulating and immunomodulating glycoconjugates from microbes and ourselves to elucidate their action mechanism in innate immunity and acquired immunity. We are now focusing the new methods for immunoregulation by using microbial and animal glycans as well as by the modification of glycan structures toward the future therapeutic applications, i.e., development of immune adjuvants and vaccines, anti-cancer therapy, anti-allergy therapy, and so on. Our strategy for immunoregulation is 1) immunostimulation through innate immune receptors such as TLR4, TLR2, Nod1, and Nod2, 2) synergistic immunostimulation by conjugation of innate immune receptor ligands, 3) immunomodulation through CD1d ligands from Entamoeba histolytica , 4) control of cell surface glycan structures of hosts, and 5) the use of glycan antigens. Based on these strategies, we synthesized various natural and designed glycoconjugates. Their immunoregulatory activity will be also described.
