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. 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 highly experienced antibody engineering and biotech executives. Seed-financed by Austrian government agencies and Atlas Venture in 2006, the Company raised EUR 9.0m in a Series A financing round from Aescap Venture, Atlas Venture and Novo A/S in 2007. In total, the Company has raised more than EUR 13m so far.
