Accelerating Biologics Design

Pushing the Frontier in Molecular Engineering

BigHat’s mission is to improve human health by making it far easier to design advanced, next-generation antibody therapeutics.

Our AI-enabled experimental platform integrates a high-speed characterization or “wet” lab with machine learning technologies to speed the antibody engineering process. When applied, these design capabilities have the potential to drive the development of new generations of safer and more effective treatments for patients suffering from today’s most challenging diseases.
