About us
Immuneed is a privately-held contract research organization specializing in immunology and preclinical drug development.
We offer in-house services to address important questions related to the safety and function of biopharmaceuticals. At Immuneed, our goal is to contribute to safer drugs for humans all over the world. We are driven because we know people’s lives are at stake. That realization underpins everything we do, reminding us why we continuously work hard to deliver benefits for patients and create value for our shareholders.

Our story

Immuneed was founded in 2014 and initially focused on the development of a novel immunotherapy for cancer. As the evaluation of this therapeutic vaccine grew more complex, we developed a proprietary platform to characterize the drug and predict outcomes in a clinical setting, thereby reducing animal studies and giving early indications of the effect in humans. In 2018, the vaccine project was acquired by the Norwegian pharmaceutical company Ultimovacs.

Today we are fully focused on developing Immuneed’s platform and associated services, which benefit biotech and pharmaceutical companies across Europe. Our platform, which is based on circulating, fresh human blood, is the only commercially available system that can monitor immune-mediated reactions in real-time – thereby linking preclinical data to clinical reality. By addressing important questions related to drug safety and immunology, we cut our customers’ costs and add value to drug development projects.

Board of directors

Our board of directors is responsible for corporate governance, overseeing risk and setting Immuneed’s strategy and policies, as well as monitoring our progress according to the annual business plan. The board represents the interests of our shareholders and is accountable for the proper conduct and growth of Immuneed’s business.
