Singapore eDevelopment subsidiary Global BioLife has started advanced research on a new universal therapeutic drug platform called Linebacker to tackle multiple conditions such as Alzheimer's, diabetes, and cancer.  

Research will be led by Daryl Thompson as the director of scientific initiatives, who will use his knowledge of organic and carbohydrate chemistry, along with pandemic technology in combating the Ebola virus to develop the new drug platform.

Global BioLife research coordinator and special projects leader Scott Truesdell will execute the research on the Linebacker platform.

The Linebacker platform intends to develop a breakthrough option to cure multiple diseases instead of treating individual diseases with specific drugs.

SeD owns 80% in Global BioLife, while Thompson's GRDG Sciences and Holista CollTech each hold 10%. 

"We are targeting for the platform to be completed within 12 months."

Thompson said: “We expect to obtain validating laboratory data from the universal therapeutic drug platform within the first six months and are targeting for the platform itself to be completed within 12 months.
