MorphoSys in a nutshell

You are here

MorphoSys is committed to developing exceptional new treatments for patients suffering from serious diseases. A leader in the field of therapeutic antibodies today, MorphoSys is driven by the ambition of creating the most valuable pipeline of biopharmaceuticals in the biotechnology industry.

For patients

Antibodies are used as therapeutic agents for the treatment of severe diseases and MorphoSys contributes to the development of novel and improved approaches. The Company has both the technical and scientific skills that are needed for the generation of optimized antibodies as therapeutics. Together with its partners from the pharmaceutical industry, MorphoSys uses this expertise to develop the medicines of tomorrow. The Company’s development activities include, but are not limited to indications such as cancer, inflammations and autoimmune diseases.

Only the most promising of MorphoSys’s own and partnered drug development programs reach clinical trials, where they are thoroughly evaluated with regards to their quality, safety and efficacy. Amongst these programs are highly promising compounds in late clinical stages which could enter the market within the next few years.

For partners

Together with its partners from the pharmaceutical industry, MorphoSys is working on novel therapeutic approaches for severe diseases. The success of its partnerships is reflected by the variety of antibodies in development. Formerly, the Company’s technologies were paramount in forming the basis for partnering agreements. Today, alliances take several different forms. In order to further strengthen its existing portfolio, MorphoSys is constantly evaluating promising antibodies and other biomolecules at late preclinical or early clinical stages for in-licensing or co-development. Agreements on synergistic technologies add to the sustainable development of MorphoSys’s business.

For investors

MorphoSys is well-known in the pharmaceutical industry for its outstanding antibody technologies, but for some time now, the Company’s comprehensive pipeline of partnered and proprietary drug programs has taken center stage. By maximizing the number of unique programs, MorphoSys increases its future upside and reduces the risk which always accompanies the development of new medicines. MorphoSys’s distinctive business model has put the Company in a very strong financial position. This strength provides the foundation for a substantially increased investment in proprietary product and technology development, which in turn drives growth and value generation.

Innovative technologies, such as the Company’s leading antibody libraries HuCAL and Ylanthia, as well as smart development strategies, are central to the Company’s approach to drug discovery and development. Together with its partners, the Company has built a therapeutic pipeline of more than 90 fully human antibody drug candidates, including advanced compounds such as bimagrumab, gantenerumab and guselkumab. MorphoSys aims to further expand its proprietary development portfolio through co-development activities or in-licensing of promising new drug candidates; MOR209/ES414 is a recent example.

We aim to create substantial value with our R&D investments in both the partnered business and our proprietary development activities.
