This initiative is administered by the Australian government to provide financial support to the biotech industry through tax offset benefits on eligible R&D spending.

CEO and Managing Director Matt Liddelow commented on the approval.

“We appreciate the continued support from AusIndustry and the Australian government in the development of our novel drug candidate EmtinB as a therapeutic treatment for neurodegenerative conditions,” Mr Liddelow said.

NeuroScientific is currently completing the final stages of its preclinical safety program in preparation for the commencement of a first in-human phase one clinical study of EmtinB.

Company shares were up 6.35 per cent to trade at 33.5 cents at 12:28 pm AEST.
