SINGAPORE, Jan. 8, 2024 /PRNewswire/ — Juniper Biologics (“Juniper“), a global science-led pharmaceutical company headquartered in Singapore, proudly announces its latest achievement, winning the award for Molecular Science & Technology Acquisition of the Year at Acquisition International’s M&A Awards 2023. This recognition highlights Juniper’s unwavering commitment to advancing treatments in oncology-supportive care and its overarching mission to enhance the quality of life of patients worldwide.
Now in its seventh year, Acquisition International’s M&A Awards recognizes the excellence of top executives, analysts, investors, and professionals in the M&A sector across diverse industries. In the healthcare domain, Juniper Biologics stands out for the second consecutive year, this time for its acquisition of Caris Molecular Intelligence®, a tumour profiling service for Asia. Juniper Biologics was awarded Best Cell & Gene Therapy Acquisition 2022 for TG-C LD (TissueGene-C low dose) for the treatment of knee osteoarthritis, in the previous year.
Caris Molecular Intelligence® is a patented service that uses technologies, such as next-generation sequencing, to examine each tumour at the various biological stages of cancer. This provides individualised data on the molecular characteristics of a patient’s cancer, enabling oncologists to make informed treatment decisions.
The acquisition signifies Juniper’s commitment to spearheading personalized cancer care, a move strategically designed not only to contribute to the well-being of the population but also to unlock new avenues for growth. With 2.2 million new cancer cases and 1.4 million cancer-related deaths annually in the region, many of which are addressed too late or incorrectly, there is a substantial demand for innovative therapies and precision medicine.
On being awarded the M&A Awards for the Molecular Science & Technology Acquisition of the Year, Raman Singh, CEO of Juniper Biologics expressed: “We’re deeply honored to receive recognition once again, this time for the acquisition of Caris Molecular Intelligence®.
