About MEMO Therapeutics AG:

Memo Therapeutics AG (MEMO) is a spin-off company of ETH Zurich. Its proprietary MemoMAB™ platform allows to create an authentic copy of whole antibody repertoires from humans and animals in recombinant form. Human antibody repertoires permit the identification of protective antibodies and their targets by comparison of different patient populations (e.g. responders vs. non-responders). In addition, MEMO’s ability to work with whole antibody repertoires increases the probability of success in finding antibodies against difficult targets, such as GPCRs, ion channels, CD3 and others.
