APEIRON Biologics AG, based in Vienna, Austria, is a clinical stage biotech company developing innovative products in cancer immunotherapy. The company was founded by Professor Josef Penninger and became operational in 2006. Apeiron currently employs about 45 people and is led by a management team with strong background in the biotech industry and drug development, especially in immuno-oncology.
Apeiron’s impressive track record in R&D of innovative projects has been validated by several license deals with Pharmaceutical companies (GSK for APN01, Sanofi for APN411, EUSA Pharma for APN311) and importantly by the marketing authorization in the EU for APN311 in May 2017 (dinutuximab beta; Qarziba®).
