Replikun Biotech Pty Limited

Industry: Pharmaceuticals, Biotechnology
Replikun Biotech Pty Limited is a private, venture capital backed company established in 2005. Replikun Biotech’s origins date back to 1960, when Professor Edwin Westaway isolated the Kunjin virus from Cx. annulirostris mosquitoes in northern Queensland. The virus was given the name of a nearby Aboriginal clan living on the Mitchell River. The discovery of Kunjin was exciting because it provided a safe means of studying flavivirus replication in the laboratory. In 1995, Professor Westaway and Associate Professor Alex Khromykh showed that the structural protein genes could be removed from the Kunjin genome without disturbing ( www.replikun.com )
