Ambrx Biopharma

General Information

We are a clinical-stage biologics company focused on discovering and developing a novel class of engineered precision biologics (EPBs), using our proprietary expanded genetic code technology platform that allows us to incorporate, in a site-specific manner, synthetic amino acids (SAAs) into proteins within living cells. Our product candidates are designed to overcome the inherent limitations of conventional conjugation approaches that use natural amino acids for non-site-specific conjugation, offering potential safety and efficacy benefits to treat patients across multiple therapeutic areas. We believe that our technology allows us to engineer a single optimized structure by designing the conjugation chemistries, selecting the precise number of amino acids and conjugation positions in the protein, and expanding the types of payloads that can be conjugated.
