By April 5, 2021No Comments

AbCellera has announced agreements to expand its collaboration with Gilead Sciences, Inc. (Gilead) including a multi-year, multi-target antibody discovery collaboration and access to AbCellera’s humanized mouse technology, the Trianni Mouse®. Under the financial terms of the agreements, AbCellera will receive an upfront payment and is eligible for milestone payments and royalties based on the development and commercialization of antibodies generated by AbCellera under this collaboration. Building on the successful completion of the first collaboration together, under the new agreement AbCellera will generate panels of antibodies for up to eight new targets, across multiple indications, selected by Gilead. The expanded collaboration will leverage the full breadth of AbCellera’s technology stack, including the recently added capabilities for sourcing diverse, fully-humanized antibodies using the Trianni Mouse® platform and combining any two antibodies to create native bispecifics using the OrthoMabTM protein engineering platform.
