About f-star

f-star is an antibody engineering company based in Vienna, Austria. The company develops improved therapeutic antibodies and antibody fragments based on its Modular Antibody Technology, which allows the introduction of additional binding sites into antibodies and antibody fragments by engineering the non-CDR loops of constant or variable domains. Using Modular Antibody Technology allows for the creation of antibody fragments with antibody functionality and long half-life but much smaller size (Fcab(TM)) or full antibodies with additional functionality (mAb squared).

The company was founded by a team of experienced antibody engineering and biotech executives. Seed-financed by Austrian government agencies and Atlas Venture in 2006, the company recently closed a Series A financing round co-led by Aescap Venture and Atlas Venture and has raised EUR 13.0m so far. f-star has 17 employees at its research site in Vienna, Austria.
