MicroMGX – High Throughput Natural Product Discovery2020-10-25T16:30:33+00:00

Making High Throughput Natural Product Discovery Possible

Natural products are chemicals produced by microbes that have important applications as the active ingredients in specialty chemical products ranging from pharmaceuticals to herbicides.

Our Mission at MicroMGx is to accelerate the discovery of new chemistry from nature that can enrich and extend human life.

Our Vision is that all undiscovered compounds produced by microbes will be identified and made accessible to life science R&D organizations around the world.​

What exactly are Natural Products?

We discover Natural Products here at MicroMGx. But, what exactly ARE Natural Products? Why is it hard to discover them? What makes MicroMGx special?

We are constantly asked these questions and have designed a short 2.5 min video to answer them. We hope you find it educational and interesting!

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.
