Improving Human and Animal Health With Protein Engineering.

Trophogen's History

Established in July 2001 by Toucan Capital, Trophogen is a start-up biotechnology company based in Rockville, Maryland. Trophogen was formed by two molecular endocrinologists who spent numerous years as academicians at NIH and the University of Maryland before striking out on their own to launch their first entrepreneurial endeavor. Our research is focused on developing super-agonists and antagonists of cystine knot growth factors. Trophogen's platform technology of substituting amino acids in protein sequences based on electrostatic interactions has implications in a variety of therapeutic fields from infertility to cancer.
