About Sutro Biopharma

Sutro Biopharma, located in South San Francisco, has developed a cell-free biochemical protein synthesis platform that enables the rapid design, engineering, testing and scalable production of novel proteins, including those containing site-specific modifications and non-natural amino acids. Sutro's platform allows the rapid and systematic exploration of many protein variants to identify drug and vaccine candidates. Once product candidates are identified, production can be rapidly and predictably scaled up to commercial levels. Sutro has established a Good Manufacturing Practice (cGMP) facility for the production of clinical supplies of materials using its biochemical protein synthesis platform.  Using this platform, Sutro is collaborating with pharmaceutical and biotech companies, including Celgene, Pfizer and Sanofi Pasteur, to discover and develop novel vaccines, peptide-based therapeutics, antibody drug conjugates and bifunctional antibodies to meet unmet medical needs. These products will significantly extend the clinical impact of current approaches and are beyond what can be envisioned with current cell-based expression technologies. For more information, visit
