Awards Event 2015
On the 21st of October 2015 over 650 guests and innovators from around New Zealand came together to celebrate the country’s top innovators, organisations and teams at the Cloud on Auckland’s waterfront.
We are pleased to announce the Supreme New Zealand Innovator for 2015 is Kode Biotech with Kode Technology Anti Cancer Treatment. Kode Biotech has been focused on the development of cell surface membrane modification technology in the fight against tumours. Synthetic animal antigens are used to modify the cancer cell surface membrane and encourage the body’s natural immune response to attack the cancer tumour cells. Kode Biotech’s lipid technology will be used in Agalimmune’s clinical human trials of their cancer immunotherapy molecules in 2016.
Special thanks also goes to Hon Jo Goodhew, Tobias Marchand, Chairman, Bayer Australia and New Zealand, Idealog, the New Zealand Innovation Council Ltd and the many other partners and sponsors that have made these Awards possible.
