About Us

About Cannaflos Group

The Cannaflos Group was founded on the promise to destigmatise Cannabis through science, and to unlock its medical potential from plant to patients’ quality of life. Our mission is to develop next-generation cannabinoid therapeutics to meet clinical needs and improve the patient’s quality of life.

Since the establishment of German Cannaflos GmbH in 2019, we continuously expanded our range of service and research activities. With the Spanish Cannaflos Genetics SL we strenghten our bond to Spanish and European universities and research facilities to elaborate the knowledge on plant genetics and plant propagation. Cannaflos Research Labs Ltd. on Malta focusses on plant material processing and pre-clinical and clinical finished drug development.

Scientist

Dr. Leo Kurian

In my laboratory we are interested in understanding the fundamental molecular rules by which a cell defines and maintains its identity and function. Our main focus is on understanding the molecular basis of programming and reprogramming in cell fate decisions during embryogenesis, homeostasis and ageing of organisms. In addition, we focus on molecular strategies that allow us to hack those genetic networks that programme cell fates, thereby triggering regenerative responses in response to injury.
