Company Summary

ProteoDesign enables biotech companies to develop better biological drugs thanks to our patented and in vivo validated technology. Protein-based drugs are the most promising medicines but most of the $8Bn annual investment in R&D is wasted due to limitations in current technologies. We eliminate some key limitations (need to introduce mutations on the Ab and to re-engineer the cell production line) and we open up new therapeutic opportunities.
