BioSourcing and The Roslin Institute announce launching of their partnership in the production of biopharmaceuticals for the animal health markets
The global animal health market is estimated at USD 30B with a 4-5% CAGR. It is poised for the major innovations brought by biopharmaceuticals, be it to better care for our aging pets, or to help address the challenges of sustainable development in livestock (for example antibiotic resistance, zoonotic diseases).
BioSourcing is a leading biotech company and strongly believes in the tremendous value of biopharmaceuticals for animal health. BioSourcing has a full stable of high potential therapeutic proteins undergoing development.
Production volumes may be large, and production costs (and capital investment) must remain attractive enough to let biopharmaceuticals be affordable for both pet owners and farmers. BioSourcing therefore focuses on breakthrough technologies, already developed and validated in human health, to transfer to Animal Health.
Biosourcing and The Roslin Institute are now launching a partnership to explore the potential of new genome editing technologies for the over expression of biopharmaceutics in milk.This will hopefully lead to improved efficiency in the methods used to produce large volumes of complex therapeutic proteins.
The Roslin Institute is world World-famous for its cutting edge research in animal genetics. It undertakes top-class basic and translational science to tackle some of the most pressing issues in animal health and welfare.
Professor Bruce Whitelaw, The Interim Director of The Roslin Institute, said:
“We are pleased to collaborate with Bio-Sourcing, a company who embrace the challenge of finding innovative solutions to animal health issues. This new collaboration complements Roslin’s mission to advance the health and welfare of animals, to underpin the livestock industry and address the global goal of food security.”
Dr. Bertrand Mérot, BioSourcing Founder and CEO said:
“We are more than happy that one of the best worldwide research center brings its scientific expertise to our industrial project. We are convinced that the unique combination of our expertises will lead us to success.”
