UNCW Signs Agreement with Ocis Biotechnology to License Application of Revolutionary Molecular Technology

The University of North Carolina Wilmington has formed a public-private partnership with MARBIONC tenant Ocis Biotechnology. The first partnership of its kind, the agreement gives Ocis Biotechnology the licensing rights to Escortin. Developed by MARBIONC researchers, Escortin will be used in upcoming Ocis research for a new "direct-cell delivery" molecule with vitamin C. Over the n several weeks, Ocis will work with a MARBIONC research team led by Andrea Bourdelais, UNCW research associate professor, to collect preliminary data for a Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) grant application. If awarded, the grant will support research and future commercialization efforts of the Escortin vitamin C conjugate. Research efforts will be placed on how the controlled delivery of vitamin C to specific locations effects tissue regeneration in chronic wound healing and vision correction. Past studies have shown that vitamin C can regenerate, renew and repair tissue by stimulating and accelerating the body's native tissue production mechanism. With successful research outcomes, Ocis and MARBIONC will move into the development phase, creating a topical product that can be purchased by companies for use in new or existing products. The licensing deal will allow Ocis to commercialize the product, which will make the company a dominant player in the tissue regeneration business, currently an $80 billion market.
