Bio-Tech R&D Institute is committed to the continued training of young scientists; and the creation of entrepreneurial opportunities will form part of our service offerings, thus fulfilling our commitments to develop local scientists and fueling the innovative and entrepreneurial spirit for economic and social development.
Through our network of partners, including major institutions involved in R&D in science and technology, Bio-Tech R&D Institute strives to leverage the human capital of the global scientific arena and translate this expertise, as far as possible, to local scientists and entrepreneurs for future product development and wealth creation.
Since December 2007, when the first announcement was made about the discovery of three (3) indigenous plants of Jamaica, which could provide major anti-cancer products, our research has continued unabated and has entered a very exciting phase, where we are poised to begin Stage I Clinical Trials on two (2) anti-cancer products from one plant (the Ball Moss).
The isolation and identification of bioactive principles from the other two plants, as well as the synthesis of derivatives of some of these bioactive molecules, which have demonstrated significant bioactivity, is on-going.
Cancer and Diabetes represents two of the major chronic disease challenges, and so much of the work will be focused on these in the near term.
We are particularly proud to be spearheading the establishment of a major, new nutraceutical industry in Jamaica and the Caribbean. This development will bring significant benefits to the people of Jamaica in many forms.
