Success stories

We're affiliated with a number of startups and new venture projects that have spun out from our technologies. 

Elastagen Pty Ltd is a clinical-stage medical device company that is pioneering Elastatherapy, which uses the human protein elastin to naturally repair and augment the skin.

The company has arisen out of patented research conducted by Professor Tony Weiss’s group and the first clinical trials have demonstrated the biocompatibility and safety of their synthetic human elastin in human subjects. 

Elastagen was aquired by leading global biopharmaceutical company, Allergan, in 2018.

Kinoxis Therapeutics Pty Ltd was spun out of the University of Sydney in 2018 and has since raised more than $10M to develop its novel anti-addiction drugs for use in the treatment of substance use disorders and other central nervous system disorders. 

The spin off follows years of research led by Professor Iain McGregor, which was the first to show oxytocin administration to laboratory animals causes long-term increases in sociability and a lasting decrease in alcohol and methamphetamine self-administration.

Agerris is an intelligent robotics company that has commercialised two robotics platforms designed to improve the productivity of livestock and horticultural farmers.    

The start up’s focus will be to equip farmers and growers with cutting-edge air and ground field robotic systems, intelligent tools and artificial intelligence (AI) solutions, to improve farm productivity and to support animal welfare and environmental sustainability.

The company is founded by Professor of Robotics and Intelligent Systems, and 2019 NSW Australian of the Year nominee Salah Sukkarieh,
