ImmuneWorks gets $300,000 seed investment

ImmuneWorks has received a $300,000 investment from Indiana Seed Fund I to help the Indianapolis company research a manufacturing process for a drug it is developing to fight idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis, a lung disease.

The fund is managed by BioCrossroads, the not-for-profit that promotes the life sciences industry in the state.

Founded last year by Dr. David Wilkes and other Indiana University School of Medicine researchers, ImmuneWorks also is developing blood tests to diagnose the disease and track patient progress while the disease is being treated.
