Victoria Link Limitied on behalf of Ferrier Research Institute

The Ferrier Research Institute, Victoria University of Wellington, New Zealand is named after the late Professor Robin Ferrier who pioneered carbohydrate chemistry in New Zealand. In its 26-year history, the Ferrier has established a world-class reputation in carbohydrate chemistry and analysis and has recently extended its expertise into the areas of synthetic and chemical biology, chemical immunology and natural product isolation.

The Ferrier has a long list of national and international collaborators and commercial clients, and a rapidly growing post-graduate contingent. It has one drug (Mundesine®) in market and several in pre-clinical development. Ferrier provides drug candidates for evaluation by MRCF, through its joint venture with GlycoSyn. Ferrier has also been a key chemistry contractor for MRCF’s stable of biotech companies including success stories such as Spinifex where Glycosyn provided medicinal chemistry, process development for scale-up and initial GMP manufacture.
