Hummingbird Bioscience is an innovative therapeutics company with a proprietary rational antibody discovery platform and deep experience in the application of integrative genomics and proteomics. We develop precision therapeutic antibodies to clinical proof-of-concept for patients with the highest unmet need.

Hummingbird Bioscience has developed a pipeline of highly promising oncology and immuno-oncology assets, and has established discovery collaborations with leading partners with the following approaches:
  • Novel, integrative approaches to tumor biology
    Recognition of the importance of both tumor evolution and evasion of immune response as a key “hallmark of cancer” has provided a wide new class of targets. Building on these insights, Hummingbird is developing a comprehensive framework to systematically address the barriers to an effective immune response in every patient. 
  • Rational Antibody Discovery Platform
    A highly innovative systems immunology and computational structural biology approach that enables precise targeting of epitopes and mechanism of action
  • Data and model driven translational medicine and biomarker identification
    Mechanism driven -omics analysis informs selection of appropriate pre-clinical models, role of tumor heterogeneity and down-stream biomarker development
