USTAR Funded Projects

SAB Capra

SAB Capra Partnered with USU* for this project.

This project focuses on targeted human immunoglobulin to treat infectious diseases and aims to find less expensive antibody production and potential to increase consistency in batches of therapeutics.

SAB Capra, LLC. is a privately-held, emerging bioscience company developing targeted human polyclonal antibodies for use in diagnostics and testing, immunotherapeutics and personalized medicine applications. The company is advancing its novel antibody production platform leveraging transgenic goats utilizing some of the most advanced polyclonal science in the world.

The company is a Utah-based wholly owned subsidiary of SAB Biotherapeutics, Inc. a clinical-stage biopharmaceutical company developing human antibody therapeutics using its first-of-its-kind natural human immunotherapy platform leveraging transgenic animals genetically designed to produce large amounts of human polyclonal antibodies in response to a target disease.

*grant funds are awarded to the university partner and matched by the industry partner.
