F-star is a leader in the development of novel bispecific antibodies

F-star is an oncology-focused biopharmaceutical company dedicated to developing novel bispecific antibody products that significantly improve the standard of care for patients.

Our Modular Antibody Technology™ allows us to rapidly discover and develop bispecific antibodies by introducing additional binding sites to the constant region of an antibody. It combines the power of our Fcab™ technology with traditional antibodies to identify the most appropriate target combinations, thus providing the opportunity to deliver products with the greatest therapeutic advantage to patients.

Developing genuine bispecific monoclonal antibodies

Our technology capitalizes on decades of experience with traditional antibody technology, while overcoming the limitations in the development and manufacture of bispecific antibodies.

Our experienced and proven team is well-positioned to leverage the strength of our proprietary bispecific antibody platform and to lead the advancement of Fcab-based antibodies to the clinic.

F-star funding secured through investors and strategic partnerships

To date F-star has raised more than €38 million in venture capital from VC investors: Aescap Venture, Atlas Venture, Novo Ventures, and TVM Capital; as well as from corporate investors: Merck Serono Ventures, MP Healthcare Venture Management, and SR One.

The company has two major alliances with Boehringer Ingelheim and Merck Serono, each covering multiple targets. The partnerships provide F-star with technology access fees, research funding, plus development and commercialization milestones, and royalties.

An asset-centric vehicle (“F-star Alpha Ltd.”) has been established to create greater commercial and financial flexibility for F-star, the investors, and future partners.
