Company Description: 

Echelon  Biosciences Incorporated (EBI) was incorporated under the laws of the  state of Utah as Echelon Research Laboratories, Inc. on October 3,  1997.  Initially, EBI was formed from a project under the Center for  Cell Signaling, a State of Utah Center of Excellence, with the aim to  further the science of lipid cell signaling and critical metabolic  enzymes, which provide new and viable targets for the development of  potential drugs and diagnostics for cancer, diabetes, inflammation,  infections, and cardiovascular disease.

From 1997 through  2004, EBI primarily used government grants and product sales revenues  to fund its research efforts. In early 2005, EBI was purchased by  Aeterna Zentaris (NAS: AEZS) for its MEP anti-infectives, PI3-Kinase  small molecule program, catalog business, and scientific expertise.   In late 2007, Frontier Scientific Incorporated (FSI) based in Logan,  Utah purchased EBI.  Specializing in porphyrin and boron chemistry,  FSI opened the doors for expanded research.

Since  1997, EBI has retained its commitment to developing novel assays and  reagents for lipid research and beyond.  At EBI’s core is the  desire to innovate, thus pushing medicinal research to new limits.   We look forward to providing scientists around the world with the  tools they need to cure human disease states for years to come and we  welcome any suggestions about how we can better do so.
