Origin of Company Name
CARNA© 2003
“Carna” – an ancient Roman Goddess – was the guardian of the heart and the vital parts of the human body. With her expectant yet determined look and hair made of protein kinases, our Goddess Carna was envisaged to represent what we need to achieve as a biotechnology company.
Combined with the word “Biosciences,” the company name Carna Biosciences expresses our untiring innovative approaches and sincere dedication in pursuit of better life through modern health science.
