About MedImmune Ventures

MedImmune Ventures is a corporate venture capital fund with $300 million under management that invests in early-to late-stage, public or private biopharmaceutical companies focused on discovering and developing human therapeutics. The primary strategic areas of interest are antibodies and peptides/proteins, other various biologics, small molecules and vaccines. MedImmune Ventures will also examine investment opportunities related to new technologies and programs related to translational sciences, and the intersection between diagnostics and drug development. Investments range from seed funding through public investments in private equity.

Created to promote entrepreneurship and to give MedImmune early access to the newest companies and discoveries, MedImmune Ventures leverages a broad base of internal resources with expertise ranging from R&D to marketing of biologics and small molecules, which closely guide its investment strategies. The fund has provided MedImmune with early exposure to new technologies and therapeutic approaches and the opportunity to establish relationships that have eventually led to R&D collaborations and acquisitions. Now as a part of AstraZeneca, the fund will seek to continue implementing its investment plan while broadening its investment interests and leveraging the parent company's internal resources as well as its relationships with academic institutions, other biotechnology companies and worldwide venture capital firms.

Parties interested in seeking funding should direct inquiries to medimmuneventures@medimmune.com.
