Retrogenix advances medical research and speeds up drug discovery for its clients by providing a unique service which identifies specific cell surface protein interactions in human cells. Retrogenix now has research agreements with fourteen of the top fifteen global pharmaceutical companies, numerous drug discovery companies and many leading academic and non-for-profit institutions around the world.
Our results have been published in high-impact journals including Nature, Molecular Cancer, Cancer Cell, mBio and Oncotarget and members of our team are regularly invited to present at international conferences. In 2015, Retrogenix won the Queen’s Award for Enterprise – the UK’s most prestigious business accolade – in recognition of its innovative work in developing and commercialising the cell microarray technology.
As well as the unique cell microarray technology, Retrogenix also holds one of the world’s largest collections of plasma membrane protein clones which are individually expressed in human cells. The collection now exceeds 4,500 full-length expression clones, covering more than 3,500 different plasma membrane proteins, with many proteins represented by multiple variants.
Retrogenix is headquartered in Whaley Bridge in the High Peak, UK, and all project work is undertaken by highly skilled scientists in our specialist laboratory facilities on-site. The company also has a US office in Cambridge, MA. Retrogenix continues to build on its global reputation and the team is rapidly expanding to keep pace with the growing demand for its services.
