About Oligomerix, Inc.

Oligomerix is an early-stage biotechnology company focused on
discovering and developing novel, small-molecule tau oligomer inhibitors
for Alzheimer’s disease (AD) and related neurodegenerative diseases with
tau pathology. Oligomerix’ drug discovery platform has identified a
pipeline of novel, central nervous system (CNS), small molecule lead
compounds for neurodegenerative diseases such as AD. The leads were
designed to inhibit tau oligomer formation at the beginning of the
aggregation process and in vivo proof-of-concept has been achieved in an
animal model best representing tau aggregation in AD. The company’s lead
program targeting AD has initiated IND-enabling studies. The NYC based
company is located at the Ullmann Research Center for Health Sciences
within the Albert Einstein College of Medicine and has received
considerable support from the National Institute on Aging of the
National Institute of Health (NIH). Oligomerix is seeking strategic
partners to support the acceleration and advancement of these important
programs. For more information about Oligomerix, please visit www.oligomerix.com.
