Our Focus

Infectious disease remains the second leading cause of death globally. The increase in multi-drug resistant bacteria and the decline in effective therapies are driving global initiatives around developing anti-infective drugs and delivery systems. Extherid Bioscience is a specialty contract research organization (CRO) delivering a range of biological R&D services with a focus on infectious diseases. We create innovative solutions by joining basic molecular concepts to clinical applications. Through the development of customizable tissue models, we explore molecular mechanisms of multi-drug resistant bacteria that lead to infections. We combine these molecular approaches with experimental and clinical pharmacology applications to identify drug targets and create new technologies.
