The (Australian) research and development (R&D) facility conducts discovery and early development of therapeutic protein drugs, particularly therapeutic antibodies
The R&D laboratories located in Sydney, employ state of the art technologies to identify, produce and characterize therapeutic protein candidates. When these potential drugs have been demonstrated to have suitable drug-like properties and genuine scope to provide patient benefit they are transferred to other parts of Teva’s R&D organization for further development and progression to the clinic. The key skillsets of the Biologics R&D scientists are:
- Protein and antibody engineering
- Cell biology and pharmacology
- Therapeutic protein production, purification and characterization.
Utilizing these technologies and expertise, the group has a track record of advancing several protein therapeutics into clinical trials.
