Financing is a Testament of the Israeli Government’s Endorsement for the Groundbreaking Antibacterial Resistance Technology of Trobix Bio

Netanya, Israel, September 18, 2019

Trobix Bio, a newly established start-up with a unique set of proprietary phage-based antibiotic resistance sensitizing solutions, announced today that the Israel Innovation Authority (IIA) recently approved a grant for Trobix Bio to receive funding through the IIA “Early Stage Companies Incentive Program.” This funding will support the continuing development of novel products that abolish bacterial antibiotic resistance.

The IIA, previously known as the Office of the Chief Scientist of Israel’s Ministry of Economy, is an independent publicly funded agency, which acts as the support arm of the Israeli government to help facilitate the development of industrial R&D within the State of Israel.

“Trobix Bio is pioneering the development of products to treat the global crisis of antimicrobial resistance, and the support of our program by the IIA is proof of their confidence in the potential of Trobix Bio to combat antibiotic resistance with our unique technology,” said Dr. Adi Elkeles, Founder and CEO of Trobix Bio.  “We are grateful for the financial support from the IIA, which complements our seed funding that was completed in March 2019, thus enabling us to spring board the development of our initial product pipeline.”
