A Little Of Our Story

A Bit of History

Sigrid Therapeutics AB (Sigrid) was founded in 2014 by Prof. Tore Bengtsson and Ms. Sana Alajmovic, with the vision of transforming the way we prevent and treat our modern day chronic lifestyle diseases. The Company’s research dates back to 2008 when Prof. Tore Bengtsson and his research group at the Department of Molecular Biosciences at Stockholm University made discoveries relating to improvements in measurements of metabolic disorders after oral ingestion of engineered silica particles.

The Company has since then developed a novel materials platform technology, SiPore™, which targets lifestyle diseases by changing the way our bodies digest food. The lead product candidate, SiPore15™, is being developed as the first therapy acting in the gut to improve blood sugar levels in people at risk of developing diabetes.

Sigrid is part of the Karolinska Innovations incubator Drive for promising life science startups in Sweden.

We all know someone afflicted by obesity or diabetes. As such, we at Sigrid never lose sight of our patients as we work relentlessly to advance groundbreaking therapies to improve their lives. We challenge current practice by developing a new class of therapies that change the way we prevent and treat the global epidemics of obesity and diabetes.
