Technology Transfer Activities of the Department of Biotechnology

From Discovery to Impact: the ultimate goal of biotechnological science is the transfer of reserach results into applications outside of academia. With our broad spectrum of approaches for the discovery and engineering of proteins tailored to particular industrial applications, we are well-endowed to take up this challenge.

Proven success: Antibodies are key reagents of modern diagnostics and therapy, and our department has a long track record of successful collaborations with health institutions, biotech and pharma industry. A variety of technology solutions and antibodies developed in the department have already been transferred to various successful applications - from catalog research antibodies and diagnostic kits to pharmaceutical drug development pipelines - via cooperations, outlicensing, two technology transfer centres, and through several spin-off companies.
