NanoSyrinx is developing a fully customisable genetic platform that selectively delivers peptide and protein payloads – including functional gene editing enzymes and nucleases – directly to the cytosol of targeted cells. The system was first identified by the Waterfield Lab based at Warwick Medical School at the University of Warwick. NanoSyrinx Ltd was founded in 2020 following the completion of an extensive international market validation exercise under the ICURe programme, funded by Innovate UK. In September 2020, the Company announced a pre-seed funding round led by M Ventures with contributions from BioCity and UK Innovation & Science Seed Fund (UKI2S).
