Gemdale’s six major incubators in the United States are newly unveiled
As an enterprise focusing on the development of the life science industry, Gemdale Viseen Industries is committed to build a full industry chain integrating R&D, pilot testing, transformation, and marketization，from incubation and acceleration to the transformation of scientific and technological achievements, providing all-round support for the landing of scientific research achievements.
Zhang Jinyuan, the Vice President of Gemdale, said in his welcome speech at the forum that Gemdale Viseen Industries has entered the filed of life science in the U.S. as early as 2014, and has gradually completed the investments in the six major incubation spaces, including San Jose Midtown and Austin Mueller Medical Office Building’s construction. It has also successfully incubated a number of life science companies such as Novita Pharmaceuticals.
It adopts a unique "investment-driven + scenario-based incubation" operating model to form a cycle of attracting investment, incubation and investment, which has helped many biopharmaceutical companies grow. Zhang Jinyuan introduced in detail that the basic situation of Gemdale Viseen Industrial’s first life science theme park in Guangzhou—— Gemdale Viseen Longsheng Huangpu Innovation Park, and expressed his recognition and expectations for the project.
In the face of the rapid development of the global life science industry, Dr. He Biao, an overseas medical and health investor from Gemdale, brought us a more comprehensive and professional perspective in his speech "The Current Situation and Future Development Trends of the Global Life Sciences Industry":
The bioindustry Market is broad, the prospects are optimistic, and the future of various fields is expected to achieve sustainable growth; excellent scientific research results, innovation and differentiated products will continue to be the core of the success of biotechnology companies; the current biotechnology market conditions are conducive to M&A and collaboration of big pharma; under the current situation, enterprises need to adjust their strategies focus on their fundamentals, and improve the efficiency of business operations; use digital technology to improve manufacturing and supply chain processes, leverage artificial intelligence and other technologies to streamline business engagement models, and cope with the changing regulatory environment and its impact on product pricing.
Subsequently, three life science companies invested by Gemdale Viseen Industry in the United States gave online speeches and demonstrated the six incubator spaces of Gemdale Viseen Industry in the United States. Huang Xingyun, chairman of Novita Pharmaceuticals, said the company is committed to develop breakthrough drugs as new cancer treatments. These small molecule drugs are Fascin-specific inhibitors that can prevent tumor metastasis. This is a major advance because 90% of cancer-related deaths are caused by tumor metastasis.
George Wu, founder and CEO of Amberstone Biosciences, said that tumor microenvironment activation therapy, with "programmable pH-dependent antibodies" as the core, represented the cutting-edge technology in the international medical field. This not only improves the safety and specificity of treatment, reduces the toxic effects on normal cells, but also improves the durability of treatment.
