HS LifeSciences manages the investment fund QureInvest II. The investment strategy differentiates itself from traditional venture capital models aiming to grow the company in a model that does not require multiple rounds of investment. Complementing the scientific founders with management, financial and commercial experience enables a focused and cost efficient growth of the companies to the clinical stage after which a pharma partner is sought to co-develop the technology through the subsequent clinical phases.
In 2015 ImmunoQure spun out Mabylon (www.mabylon.com). Mabylon has set up a high throughput technology for autoantibody screening of large human populations and uses ImmunoQure’s technology platform to retrieve autoantibodies from sero-positive samples. Mabylon is focusing on discovery of effective, safe human-derived biologicals in the areas of neurology, cardiovascular disease and food allergies. ImmunoQure AG is a significant shareholder of Mabylon
