Gedea Biotech develops an antibiotic-free, safe and effective treatment of vaginal fungal infections. Gedea Biotech's substance is a natural substance, known to be harmless and is now formulated into an easy-to-use treatment. Behind the idea lies years of basic research from an interdisciplinary research group, and in 2017 the project won first prize in Lund University and Sparbanksstiftelsen Finn's Award for Future Innovations.

Gedea Biotech is founded by Olov Sterner, professor at the Faculty of Science, Helena Strevens, specialist physician in Gynaecology and Obstetrics as well as researcher at the Faculty of Medicine and Ulf Ellervik and Sophie Manner, both chemists at LTH.
