Abera granted funding for challenge studies

After careful review, the ADITEC Steering Committee decided to approve Abera’s proposal for a challenge study. The proposal from Abera covered challenge studies for the TB-candidates developed based on the company’s proprietary platform.

– We are very excited about the upcoming studies and we are happy to see that the committee has seen the potential in our TB-candidates. It validates the quality of the research that has gone into developing these candidates. – Prof. Joen Luirink, CSO at Abera Bioscience.
