Scheme highlights Importance of Innovation for Growth

Mar 23 2021

The Innovate NI Innovation Accreditation programme from the Department for the Economy has awarded Platinum Level Status to Fusion Antibodies, indicating that company has secured commercial benefits from its technology offering.  The business received the certification for its antibody engineering and discovery platforms which have been developed based on their own intelligent design.

The Programme aims to highlight the importance of innovation for business growth, create more awareness of the value of innovation, as well as how to innovate. The ultimate goal is to increase the number of Northern Ireland businesses successfully engaging in innovation activity.

On receiving the award Dr Richard Jones, CEO of Fusion Antibodies, said: “We are delighted to receive this award and I would like to thank our tremendous team who embody the spirit of innovation. At Fusion we are continuously innovating to enhance our capability to deliver services and solutions that allow our clients to develop the best possible antibodies against their target getting them closer to their end goal; the provision of treatments that improve the lives of patients throughout the world.

“Unlike many of our competition, our library design approach explores the natural hypermutation space; in essence, we believe that when it comes to engineering antibodies, the sequence should be kept as natural as possible and so ‘mimics’ the human system.”

“I am immensely proud of what everyone has worked so hard together to achieve. It’s a great way to start 2021 which promises to be another exciting year for the company, with a number of new exciting developments already in the pipeline.”
