Team Focus Areas

Filter by focus

We are thoughtfully assembling a world-class team of manufacturing and operations specialists, scientists, and engineers. Building from the ground up with the freedom to innovate, this team will design, build, qualify, and operate a new CMC laboratory and a 130K sq ft GMP facility in Canada. By seamlessly integrating cutting-edge discovery and translational research teams, our new CMC team will empower the development of high-quality treatments for GMP manufacturing.

Our Quality team provides quality assurance and quality control support to our CMC Process Development and Manufacturing teams, ensuring industry best practices that meet or exceed cGMP standards. The Quality team will support the design, qualification, and ongoing operational activities of AbCellera’s CMC laboratories and our fully-integrated drug substance/drug product clinical manufacturing facility in Vancouver, Canada.

Our business operations team performs administrative, finance, operations, human resources, and project management functions to support happy, healthy and productive employees. Our primary focus is fostering team unity and ensuring all employees are able to do what they do best – every day.

We focus on driving the immune response to find rare, diverse, and potent antibodies from any species against even the most difficult disease targets. This includes clever immunization strategies using various immunogen formats including nucleic acids and membrane proteins, development of assays using mammalian cell lines and primary cells, development of media conditions and cell enrichment strategies, and design of complex functional assays. 

Our partnering team focuses on building and supporting partnerships that aim to bring to better drugs for patients. This includes analyzing commercial landscapes, generating and managing new business opportunities, launching new partnerships and growth strategies, and working with executive, scientific, and communication teams to advance AbCellera’s mission.

We focus on bringing advanced protein-based technologies for everything from antigen-driven immune responses to production and characterization of high quality antibodies for disease treatment. This includes high-throughput recombinant expression and purification of soluble and membrane proteins, biophysical characterization, binding and functional validation, and developability analysis. We also perform protein engineering to optimize sequences and to unlock advanced therapeutic formats from bispecifics to CAR-T cell therapies.

Many of our technologies are built and designed in-house to automate the selection and isolation of individual antibody-producing immune cells. We design microfluidic devices, each capable of physically isolating many thousands of single cells to allow customized antibody screening assays. We use robotics and machine vision to image each chamber of our devices and select for antibody-specific hits, followed by automated recovery of the antibody-producing cells for sequencing. Our goal is to continuously push the throughput, capacity, and robustness of our system in search of rare and potent antibodies. 

Directly impacting patient health

I was working in Boston for a big pharma company, and really wanted to move back to Vancouver. I also wanted to keep doing work that could directly impact patient health. AbCellera allows me to do both, all while working with an incredibly collaborative team who do what it takes to get the job done together.

Passionate people

When I saw a Canadian company attaining meaningful scale and tackling such globally impactful problems, I was immediately interested in joining the team. Even when I was still in the application process, it was clear to me that AbCellera’s foundation is built on people. Everyone I work with is engaged, interested, and passionate about the work we are doing!
