Company Summary

By using our proprietary platform, V-Genesis, antibodies that already exist within us where they are known to be safe and efficacious are now easily recovered, assayed in vitro, and molecularly reconstituted as fully human recombinant antibodies for out license to pharmas/biotech companies who wish to develop them. Our approach allows the rapid selection of the best possible antibody while dramatically lowering risk of drug failure.
