Leonardo Olivera

  • Current company LEONARDO OLIVERA
  • Country Uruguay

Clausen focuses is on the commercialization of high-cost and highly specialized biological and biotechnology products. Clausen’s R&D strength for the past six years has been the development of a molecule – Human Recombinant Thrombopoietin, TPO – which will potentially be used in the treatment of cancer. TPO is the first molecule entirely developed in Uruguay – its patent was granted in Uruguay in 2002 – and it is by far Uruguay’s most sophisticated and ambitious genetic engineering project. Leonardo was selected as an Endeavor entrepreneur in 2002.
