The Hive is now open for 2020 applications

Posted on December 16th, 2019 by in Pharma R&D

It’s been three years since Elsevier launched The Hive, the innovation initiative for biotech and pharmaceutical start-ups committed to promoting collaboration and inspiration across pharma and the life sciences industry. Now it’s time once again for us to welcome new applicants!

A passion for science leads to innovative treatments

From the first iteration, which included Arctic Pharma AS, Myelo Therapeutics and Reset Therapeutics, to the second cohort of innovators, including 4P-PharmaBeacon DiscoveryExscientiaLegoChem BiosciencesSigilon Therapeutics and Unum Therapeutics, I have learned a lot about their ground-breaking research. I have also observed their passion in pursuit of science, and how their work capability has improved by utilizing Elsevier’s Life Sciences solutions.

Many of them are doing truly cutting-edge research in areas like immunotherapy, genomics and artificial intelligence. Whether it’s building a new class of combination cancer therapies, developing improved treatments for chronic diseases or creating next-gen therapeutics utilizing a unique proprietary platform, these innovative start-ups are poised to improve healthcare as we know it and lead to better outcomes for people suffering from diseases.

Hive success stories

It has been a fascinating journey to follow the accomplishments of our current Hive participants during our partnership. Rubius Therapeutics, for instance, which is using red blood cells to fight disease, has recently announced the FDA clearance of Investigational New Drug Application for First-Ever Red Cell Therapeutic, RTX-134, for Treatment of Phenylketonuria.

And one more example that I am excited to see advance from our “Hive club,” Sigilon Therapeutics has also received Orphan Drug Designation for SIG-001 for the Treatment of Hemophilia A. I hope all the Hive members will have continued success and recognition in this fast-growing industry with the help of Elsevier’s Life Sciences solutions!
