PharmaAbs: Launching Event, October 1, 2008
Auditorium BMW 6, Gasthuisberg, O&N II, Herestraat 49, Leuven
PharmAbs is a research center that focuses on production, development and characterization of antibody-based molecules. It has been founded by K.U.Leuven R&D and five groups of the K.U.Leuven which clustered their complementary expertise in a validated platform that can deliver tailor-made monoclonal, full human or humanized antibodies, antibody fragments or antibody-based molecules (see www.pharmabs.org).
PharmAbs has created a state-of-the-art antibody technology platform open for co-development projects with K.U.Leuven research groups, as well as for contract research collaborations with industrial partners.
The central objectives of PharmAbs are
- to fill the current need of academic research groups for customized antibodies and antibody-based tests
- to create a significant added value for academic biomedical research projects and to bring these projects to the level of optimal commercial value
- to facilitate biotechnology development into the maze of the critical path of antibody-based therapeutics or diagnostics development
