Crowdfunding for Cystic Fibrosis and Other Pediatric Rare Diseases Research Projects



Hi Everyone,

I represent a small pharmaceutical company located in Barcelona, Spain, called SOM Biotech. We are a very young company dedicated to drug repostioning. Drug repositioning is the process of applying therapeutics, which already exist, towards new diseases. In our case, we are focused on drug repositioning for rare diseases.

At the very present we are running a crowdfunding campaign to raise funds to start new scientific research projects in 5 pediatric rare diseases (diseases which affect a small portion of children worldwide). Cystic fibrosis is one of the projects included in our new initiative, which we are hoping to find a new and more effective therapeutic through our drug repositioning research processes.

Our campaign is currently running until February 2, 2016, and we are currently seeking research groups to collaborate with in the near future. We have the backing of several association and federations, including the Spanish Federation of Rare Diseases.

For more information about initiative and/or if you would like to donate, I welcome you to visit our pages: and
