About iBio, Inc.

iBio, Inc. is a biotechnology company offering its proprietary, transformative iBioLaunch technology platform for the production of biologics including therapeutic proteins and vaccines. The iBioLaunch platform uses transient gene expression in green plants for superior efficiency in protein production. Advantages include significantly lower capital and process costs, and the technology is ideally suited for complex proteins and for applications where speed, scalability, and surge capacity are important. The iBioLaunch technology was developed for iBio by the not-for-profit Fraunhofer USA Center for Molecular Biotechnology (FCMB) during the past eight years to overcome the inadequacies of existing technologies. iBio granted a fully paid-up, non-exclusive, non-commercial license to the iBioLaunch Technology solely for the purpose of developing, manufacturing and distributing hookworm vaccine for Global Access Objectives – the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation program to provide vaccines for the people most in need within developing countries of the world – reserving a right of first refusal to provide each of technology transfer and/or manufacturing services required to achieve the Global Access objectives on a commercially reasonable, competitive and sustainable cost basis. iBio owns the intellectual property and technology developed at FCMB, and continues to sponsor development and application of the technology for biological applications in human health.
