Welcome to the homepage of the Endowed Professorship of Immunotechnology PIT.
The PIT belongs to the Institute of Biochemistry and Biology of the University of Potsdam. We are funded by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) under the InnoProfile Transfer program.
The PIT is developing innovative technologies in antibody generation that should be combined to a unique, efficient and fast antibody producing platform during the life span of the project (2015-31.08.2020). One main topic dedicates the development of an artificial immune reaction to produce specific monoclonal antibodies in vitro.
Katja Hanack and Pamela Holzlöhner decided in 2014 to found a company in the context of the InnoProfile initiative. The company „new/era/mabs“ offers the custom-made generation of monoclonal antibodies. Technologies that were developed during the funding period were transferred into the company. The company won the Guido-Reger award from the University of Potsdam for the “most innovative start up” in 2014.
