South Rampart Pharma funding
In addition to having a promising scientific co-founder, South Rampart Pharma has received recent grants that demonstrate potential for growth. In 2020, the NIH awarded South Rampart Pharma an STTR grant of $1.9 million intended to fast-track the company in their development of non-opioid pain treatments. The NIH is funding South Rampart Pharma because of their pain treatment’s promise as a solution to the opioid public health crisis. The pain medication that is being researched by South Rampart Pharma has not seen the same abuse potential as opioids and lacks the toxicity that over the counter drugs like acetaminophen have. This grant accelerated South Rampart’s progress in drug development, bringing them into Phase 1 clinical trials during March of 2022.
