Harbour BioMed's biologic discovery programs are based on two proprietary, transgenic mouse platforms for generating human therapeutic antibodies. The platforms have broad potential for generating both conventional antibody therapeutics as well as the Next-Gen biologics that are affinity matured, fully human with excellent solubility and developability.
The transgenic mouse platforms are:
