About Matinas BioPharma
Matinas BioPharma is a biopharmaceutical company
focused on improving the intracellular delivery of nucleic acids
and small molecules with its lipid nanocrystal (LNC) platform

Preclinical and clinical data have demonstrated
that this novel technology can provide solutions to many of the
challenges in achieving safe and effective intracellular delivery,
for both small molecules and larger, more complex molecules, such

broad-spectrum aminoglycoside, amikacin, primarily used to treat
chronic and acute bacterial infections, and currently in Phase 1.
Externally, the Company has established a broad set of
relationships with multiple global pharmaceutical collaborators,

Gilead Sciences (antivirals), and Genentech, a member of the Roche
Group (small molecules, antisense oligonucleotides, and antibody
