For the past 16 years, since 2004, GenScript has gradually expanded its reach in the antibody drug discovery segment and established its capabilities in process development, helping many customers with their IND approvals during the period. In 2019, GenScript opened the Biologics Development Business Unit (BDBU), the predecessor of GenScript ProBio, and invited Dr. Brian Min, Senior Vice President at Samsung Bioepis, to join as CEO and form a management team with exceptional international perspectives. The core members of the team each have more than 15 years working experience at recognized international firms across the sector, including Roche, Pfizer, Henlius and Innovent, among others.

"The GenScript CDMO platform has established strong antibody capabilities within just 18 months since launch and has accumulated considerable experience in cell and gene therapy," said Dr. Brian Min at the launch of the brand. "GenScript ProBio's one-stop antibody drug development solutions will proactively provide clients with end to end service from target to commercialization. Looking beyond China and the Asia Pacific region, many large multinational companies in the United States and Europe have also established productive partnerships with us. Operating under the principle of 'Innovation through Collaboration', we fully expect to drive the development and progress of the whole industry together with our customers."
GenScript ProBio has been committed to accelerating the development of the cell therapy sector and helping firms within the sector accelerate the commercialization of cell therapy products. With the advent of the era of cell and gene therapy, GenScript ProBio plans to continue providing process optimization and production in line with international quality standards through a sound global supply chain network, empowering more partners worldwide to benefit patients anywhere at an early date.
