major therapeutic antibody discovery platform. We have embarked on a journey to bring truly widespread antibody therapy to patients around the world," said Dr. Zhiqiang An.

Prior to joining Epitomics, Dr. An played a major role in the creation of Merck's biologics research department including the establishment of their antibody technology platform. In his tenure at Merck, Dr. An and his team initiated a large number of antibody discovery programs in diverse therapeutics areas. As a result, multiple antibodies were identified as development candidates and are currently at various stages of development.

Dr. An started his biotech/pharmaceutical career at Millennium Pharmaceuticals where he established one of the very first programs attempting biocombinatorial natural products drug discovery using microbial molecular genetics and engineering approaches. Dr. An is a frequently invited speaker at scientific conferences and various academic settings and has authored numerous patents, journal articles, review papers, and books, including 2006's "Handbook of Industrial Mycology" and a comprehensive treatise entitled "Therapeutic Antibodies - from Theory to Practice," which will be published in early 2009. He received a B.S. in Biology from Shanxi Agricultural University, an M.S. in Biology from Beijing Agricultural University, and a Ph.D. in Plant Pathology from University of Kentucky, Lexington. Dr. An had his postdoctoral training at University of Wisconsin-Madison.
