Umeå company almost quadruples team as new antibody progresses to clinical trials
Umeå-based Lipum will reach an important milestone in its history this year as clinical trials begin on its antibody to treat inflammatory diseases. No less than 17 consultants are now involved in the drug’s development.
“Developing a new drug is complicated, and the process is governed by strict regulations. It is therefore important to build a competent team in and around the company. The number of employees a company has does not always tell the whole story. In reality there are often many more people needed to develop a drug”, says Pernilla Abrahamsson, Chief Operating Officer at Lipum.
