About Milestone

Founded in AltaMonte Springs, Florida in January 2007, Milestone Biosciences, LLC is a privately held specialty biotech company with offices in Florida, Minnesota and New Jersey, that focuses on in-licensing and commercializing niche oncology products that would otherwise have limited exposure in the oncology marketplace. Milestone is dedicated to utilizing its broadly-based commercial expertise in oncology to make these niche oncology products available to patients whose treatment options are limited, or where there are recognized unmet medical needs. Milestone also seeks to partner with smaller R&D-focused companies and other companies with no U.S. commercial presence, to commercialize their niche oncology products and thus enable them to continue doing what they do best.
