The round was led by the Dutch Investment Firm, Meneldor, who partnered with Norwegian and American investors. Among the Norwegian investors are Kistefos AS and Kvantia AS. Most of the earlier investors followed their seed investment, and the board chaired by Steven Powell, remains unchanged.

“Hemispherian continues to accelerate its clinical ambitions and we are pleased to continue our support of Hemispherian’s selective anti-cancer pharmaceutical pipeline. This funding will support preclinical development of GLIX1 and GLIX5, the company’s lead assets.”

Hemispherian is an innovative pharmaceutical company focused on developing a novel class of small molecule drugs (GLIX). GLIX compounds target the TET2 enzyme and activate the DNA damage response resulting in cancer cell death. The company’s lead compound, GLIX1, is in late-stage preclinical development for the treatment of glioblastoma multiforme, a deadly cancer of the central nervous system and the leading cause of death by disease in children.
