About Biotech Showcase
Biotech Showcase™ is an investor and partnering conference devoted to providing private and public biotechnology and life sciences companies with an opportunity to present to, and meet with, investors and pharmaceutical executives in one place during the course of one of the industry's largest annual healthcare investor conferences. Investors and biopharmaceutical executives from around the world gather in San Francisco during this critical week which is widely viewed as setting the tone for the coming year.
Neurotrope was formed in October 2012 to develop and market two product platforms, including a minimally-invasive diagnostic test for Alzheimer's Disease and a drug candidate called bryostatin for the treatment of Alzheimer's Disease, both of which are in the clinical testing stage. These technologies were initially developed by Blanchette Rockefeller Neurosciences Institute ("BRNI") and its affiliates starting in 1999 and have been financed through significant funding from a variety of non-investor sources. The Company expects that its first product, the diagnostic test for Alzheimer's Disease, will finish the testing phase of its development in 2015, whereupon the Company will evaluate the feasibility of its commercialization. In addition to bryostatin and the diagnostic test for Alzheimer's Disease, the Company currently intends to pursue the development of bryostatin analogues, which have demonstrated preclinical potency in treating ischemic stroke and other neurodegenerative disorders.
