“We recognize that the ‘science’ of health care is getting harder, and not easier. So at Cambridge Healthtech Associates, we would like to highlight the accomplishments of some true leaders and pioneers in the industry. To this end, we have created the Signature Award™ to profile and share with the life sciences discovery community some truly innovative technologies and solutions that are ready to take the market by storm. We are pleased to shine the light on arGEN-X, its innovation-driven culture and its clearly differentiated antibody discovery capabilities. As a pioneer in providing therapeutic-quality antibodies against the most challenging disease targets in our industry, arGEN-X meets the criteria we have set for the Signature Award™,” said Dawn Van Dam, General Manager, Cambridge Healthtech Associates.

Our uniqueness comes from our SIMPLE Antibody™ platform: human antibodies of unlimited functional diversity and novel mechanisms of action against even highly complex disease targets. We are recognized in the industry for addressing needs beyond the reach of established antibody technologies,” said Dr. Debbie Allen, Senior Director of Business Development at arGEN-X.
