Company History
ConjuGon was founded in 2001 to develop a technology to combat the growing epidemic of antibiotic-resistant bacteria. The technology, based on the work of Dr. Marcin Filutowicz, a Professor in the Bacteriology Department of the University of Wisconsin-Madison, used the naturally-occurring process of conjugation to deliver engineered genes from harmless donor bacteria to targeted, unwanted bacteria. The genes then were expressed in the target and form antibacterial gene products which proceed to kill the unwanted bacteria through multiple and redundant mechanisms. ConjuGon changed its name to Atterx BioTherapeutics Inc. in Dec 2014.
