Collaborations & Publications


Leadartis is fully engaged in collaboration agreements with companies, excellence research centers and universities including:

  • Selexis SA. A Swiss company engaged in GMP compliant antibody manufacturing for preclinical and clinical studies.
  • Spanish National Cancer Research Center (CNIO, Madrid, Spain) to address the structures of the Trimerbody-based molecules and the Spanish National Center for Cardiovascular Diseases (CNIC, Madrid, Spain) to validate alternative anti-tumor mechanisms including enhancing tumor antigen presentation (APC engagement).
  • Cancer Research Technology UK. The world’s leading independent cancer charity dedicated to saving lives through research, influence and information.
  • Foundation for Biomedical Research at the 12 de Octubre and Puerta de Hierro University Hospitals (Madrid, Spain) focused on conducting efficacy, safety, immunogenicity, pharmacokinetics and biodistribution studies in animal models.
  • Centre for Applied Medical Research (CIMA, Pamplona, Spain) to address the in vivo efficacy of Trimerbody-based molecules in experimental models of cancer.
  • Research Biomedicine Institute Alberto Sols (IIBm, Madrid, Spain) to assess the intracellular signaling events induced by specific candidate molecules.
