Phion Therapeutics, a Queen’s spin-out company developed by Professor Helen McCarthy from the School of Pharmacy, was the overall winner of INVENT 2017.
"Phion has been able to concentrate various anionic drugs into tumours while preventing delivery to normal or healthy tissue and cells. This is potentially revolutionary for the treatment of cancer. The list of potential applications is almost limitless. As Phion engages with more pharmaceutical companies, we expect to discover even more drug classes that could be applied to our technology."
