Embark Laboratories ApS

About Embark Biotech: Embark Biotech is a 2017 spin-out from the Novo Nordisk Foundation Center for Basic Metabolic Research (CBMR) at University of Copenhagen, where Associate Professor Zach Gerhart-Hines, together with then postdoctoral fellow Jakob Bondo Hansen and Professor Thue W. Schwartz, discovered a novel target that suppresses appetite increases energy expenditure and enhances insulin sensitivity (seed support from Novo Holdings). Development of the target was initiated via an early collaboration with Novo Nordisk. The project was then further matured through support and guidance from the InnoBooster program at the Innovation Fund Denmark and from the BioInnovation Institute (BII) during a residency in the Venture House Program. About Embark Laboratories: Embark Laboratories is a Danish biotech company that focuses on cardiometabolic disease with an emphasis on energy expenditure. All former Embark Biotech staff will continue their work and scientific journey in Embark Laboratories. [ EMBARK Laboratories is a spin-out from EMBARK Biotech, ww230901 ] *
