Mymetics Corporation is a US registered biotechnology company with its main office in Switzerland. Mymetics’ vision is to become the market leader in the development of new generation mucosal and virosomes based vaccines. The Company is focused on developing these innovative preventative vaccines using two key scientific approaches:
(i) Virosomes as an effective adjuvant and a vaccine delivery method, and
(ii) Innovative antigen design by generating mucosal antibodies.
With only 26 diseases addressed by vaccines, it is a well known fact that the world needs many more vaccines. By focusing on the two scientific approaches, Mymetics’ strategy is addressing two critical needs in developing effective vaccines:
(i) The ability to build a first line of defense against viruses entering the blood stream by focusing on the mucosal layer.
(ii) The development of a new vaccine delivery platform that does not use live attenuated or killed pathogens, while increasing the immunogenicity and stability of the vaccine.
The Company is led by an international and experienced management team, with lifetime experience in vaccines and business management, which has achieved significant progress in developing and securing the rights and intellectual property to vaccines that use these two approaches. The team is supported by a very strong Scientific Advisory Board, consisting of world leading experts and key opinion leaders.
