Endowed Professorship of Immunotechnology

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 (2015-2019). One main topic dedicates the development of an artificial immune reaction to produce specific monoclonal antibodies in vitro.

Founding of the company “new/era/mabs GmbH”

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.

The Journal „Unternehmen Region“ (2016 / Ausgabe 2) introduces the two entrepreneurs and the funding idea. The headline of the articel is „Eine neue Ära“(a new era)

Ein Beitrag über Unternehmen Region und unter diesem Dach über unser Projekt "Kamelide Antikörper".

Im Blickpunkt - Maßgeschneiderte Antikörper

At the 18th of May 2017 our second status seminar our InnoProfile-Transfer Projekt „artificial immune reaction " took place.

It was a constructive and cooperative event with an impressive guest lecture by Professor Fritz Melchers about “The early B-cell development”.

Along these lines a marvellous article "Im Blickpunkt" was published about our project on the web page from the Federal Ministry of Education and Research.
