News & Events

Mar 2014  Neuronascent to participate in the Redefining Early Stage Investment (RESI) Innovation Challenge, an investment meeting in Boston, MA, March 24, 2014.

May 2012  Dr. Kelleher-Andersson, the President and CSO of Neuronascent, Inc. presented at the annual Neurotechnology Industry Organization meeting in Boston. Kelleher-Andersson led off the Frontiers in Neurotech panel, by describing the large unmet need for disease modifying therapies to treat Alzheimer’s disease, post-traumatic stress disorder and Down syndrome, then suggested how Neuronascent’s first-in-class therapeutic candidates might address those unmet needs.

Mar 2012  Patent claims were issued in South Korea for Neuronascent’s National patent application entitled “Methods and compositions for stimulating neurogenesis and inhibiting neuronal degeneration”. Patent claims had previously been issued in the US and Russia back in 2011.

Feb 2012  The founder and President of Neuronascent, Inc., Dr. Judith Kelleher-Andersson presented details of Neuronascent’s Alzheimer’s disease and Down syndrome pre-clinical therapeutic candidates at the 14th American Society for Experimental Neurotherapeutics conference in Washington, DC.

Jun 2011  Dr. Kelleher-Andersson, the President and CSO of Neuronascent, is planning to attend the BIO meeting in Washington D.C. This BIO International meeting “is the largest global event for the biotechnology industry”. It also “offers key networking and partnering opportunities” for small biotech companies like Neuronascent.

Dec 2010  Judith Kelleher-Andersson, Ph.D., the founder and CSO of Neuronascent was an invited speaker at CBI’s 4th Annual Alzheimer’s Disease Drug Discovery Summit on December 14th in Washington DC. Dr. Kelleher-Andersson presented work on Neuronascent’s preclinical lead AD candidate and the status of neurogenesis for neurodegenerative diseases in a talk entitled “Utilizing neurogenic therapeutics in an effort to reverse Alzheimer’s disease”.

Dec 2010  Neuronascent receives a Maryland Biotechnology Center Translational Research award for their application entitled “Preclinical Development of Novel Neurogenic Depression Candidate,” The grant of $199,204.88 will support studies to move Neuronascent’s lead depression candidate toward human testing and determine whether this neurogenic agent will also be effective in improving cognitive capacity in young Down syndrome individuals. The Brain Translational Center at Johns Hopkins University under the leadership of Dr. Barbara Slusher will collaborate specifically to scale-up the synthesis of this small molecule compound and to determine if there could be any potential toxicity issues in moving toward human clinical testing.

Oct 2010  Neuronascent receives a Therapeutic Drug Discovery Grant awarded to companies that are presently developing therapeutics for diseases with unmet need. All applicants were examined both by NIH for scientific value and then by the IRS prior to receipt of award. Monies will be spent for further development costs for Neuronascent’s Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s disease therapeutic candidates.
