FirstIgnite is supporting the commercialization of Florida International University’s novel tools for DNA topology and topoisomerases research technology. This innovative technology comprises fluorescently labeled circular DNA molecules, offering a rapid and cost-effective approach to study DNA topology and topoisomerases using fluorescence resonance energy transfer (FRET).
The immediate and future applications of this technology are to provide a type of novel reagents to study DNA topology and topoisomerases by FRET and a new method for high throughput drug screening against DNA topoisomerases for anticancer drug discovery and antibiotics discovery. In 2022, the anticancer drug discovery market size was worth $172.8 billion, and is expected to reach $335 billion by 2032.
Florida International University’s novel tools for DNA topology and topoisomerases research technology is ready for collaboration (licensing, partnerships, industry feedback, etc.).
