Crown Bioscience's Translational Platform for Oncology and Immunotherapeutics leverages the world's largest commercial collection of PDX in Human Surrogate Trials (HuTrial™) to accelerate the successful translation of novel oncology therapies into the clinic, as well as the most comprehensive range of dedicated in vitro and in vivo services to power your oncology drug discovery projects. With a constantly growing, globally diverse collection of over 2,000 PDX, and 8,000 Tumor tissues, humanised models for immunotherapeutics, and the capacity to run 100s of models in parallel, let's talk about how we can help you accelerate the transition of your lead candidate into the clinic.
