Crescendo Biologics is building a pipeline of novel medicines based on our highly innovative VH antibody fragment platform. Crescendo’s unique transgenic mouse platform rapidly and predictably generates high-affinity human heavy chain-only antibodies using the natural process of in vivo B-cell development following immunisation. VH single domain fragments from these heavy chain-only antibodies require no humanisation, making this a rapid and reliable route to candidate quality VH therapeutics.

Software for calculating and comparing molecular field characteristics of chemical compounds and consultancy services enabling companies to outsource computational chemistry work to achieve high value, on-demand expertise, particularly in areas of library design, virtual screening, scaffold hopping, lead optimisation and patent analysis. Cresset’s field technology uses surface properties of molecules to evaluate their activities and properties, rather than relying on 2D structure similarity, which enables Cresset’s users to find more interesting, novel and relevant results than other methods. This provides a smarter, structure independent way of hit-finding, lead switching and lead optimisation in drug discovery and other chemistry-based research projects.
