Our Process

Our History

MicroMGx (originally named Microbial Pharmaceuticals) was co-founded in 2015 by Northwestern University Professors Neil Kelleher and Regan Thomson and University of Illinois Professor William Metcalf.  The Chief Scientific Officer of MicroMGx, Anthony Goering, PhD, discovered the first novel, active compound using MicroMGx’s cutting-edge technology platform.

Metabologenomics is the core of MicroMGx’s natural product discovery platform, developed over a decade-long collaboration between the co-founding Professors. MicroMGx began operations in 2017 with an award from the Small Business Innovation Reward (SBIR) program of the National Institutes for Health.
