Working at the interface of computation, engineering, and biology, AbCellera is redefining the process of how drugs are discovered. Our full-stack AI-powered drug discovery platform searches, decodes, and analyzes natural immune systems to find antibodies that our partners can develop into drugs to prevent and treat disease.
Our team includes scientists, engineers, software developers, data scientists and business professionals working on drug discovery programs with leading biotechnology companies, global health organizations, and many of the top 10 biopharmaceutical companies. We partner with drug developers of all sizes to empower them to move more quickly, reduce cost, and tackle some of the toughest problems in antibody discovery. The ultimate goal is to help bring new therapies to patients faster, and our work spans many diseases including oncology, inflammation, cardiovascular disease, pain, neurodegeneration, and more. Last year, AbCellera was named to Fierce Biotech’s Fierce 15 list, and received three Fast Company awards, including the Most Innovative Team of the Year for 2020.
