Microchips Biotech, Inc., a privately held medical device company located in Lexington, MA, is dedicated to improving the lives of patients by revolutionizing drug delivery. Our microchip-based implant has the potential to address significant unmet needs by simplifying dosing regimens and enhancing compliance for patients who need frequent dosing or require regular injections. We are developing applications for the microchip-based implant in multiple therapeutic indications including osteoporosis, diabetes, multiple sclerosis and women’s contraception and we are partnering with industry and foundations to meet patient needs across the globe.
The core microchip technology emerged from MIT and has a robust patent portfolio. The microchip-based implant is a self-contained hermetically-sealed drug delivery device that is easy to implant and remove in a physician’s office setting that can store 100’s of therapeutic doses over months and years, and release each dose at precise times. The solid-state electronic device can be controlled by the patient and/or clinician via wireless remote or can be programmed to release drug on a pre-determined schedule.
The implant has been clinically-validated in human studies delivering PTH in osteoporosis patients and the most advanced version of the system is fully programmable via wireless communications to adjust dosing by the physician and/or patient.
We are interested in talented individuals that want to join a fast-paced, multi-disciplinary team committed to make this technology available to patients everywhere.
