Dignify Therapeutics Locates Offices in RTP at First Flight Venture Center

RESEARCH TRIANGLE PARK, N.C., Jan 28, 2014 — Dignify Therapeutics, a virtual  drug development company, has established its offices in Research Triangle Park at the First Flight Venture Center (FFVC), a well-known incubator of startup companies in the Triangle area.

Andy Schwab, President of FFVC states, “We at the First Flight Venture Center are proud to serve as an incubator for Dignify Therapeutics.  It is personally rewarding to contribute to the growth of a company that aims to provide therapy for critical unmet medical needs of people with spinal cord injury and other neurological conditions.”

Dignify Therapeutics was incorporated in June 2013, and is focused on restoring voluntary control of excretory function to people with spinal injury, spina bifida, multiple sclerosis, and other neurological conditions.

“We are pleased to be immersed in an environment that surrounds us with the enthusiastic atmosphere generated by other entrepreneurs.  The support and guidance we receive from the senior management and entrepreneurs-in-residence at the First Flight Venture Center is highly valuable as we progress our ideas from the lab into the clinic,” said Dr. Karl B. Thor, President and co-Founder of Dignify Therapeutics.
