Canurta, a preclinical biotechnology company pioneering the discovery and production of novel, polyphenol ingredients, is pleased to announce that the company has received funding from the National Research Council of Canada Industrial Research Assistance Program (NRC IRAP) to develop a proof of concept for a respiratory disease therapeutic positioned to address respiratory disease by preventing viral infection/replication and treating associated implications, including inflammation.


The funding stems from a challenge issued by the National Research Council of Canada (NRC) through the Federal Government’s Innovative Solutions Canada (ISC) program. The funding will allow Canurta to demonstrate the scientific, technical and commercial merit of our respiratory therapeutic asset, which includes designing various assays to test and evaluate several key activities to achieve essential outcomes, including evaluation of future human clinical assessment.
