CLIPS™ technology: “Powerful, elegant, and full of potential”

Mastering peptides can enable life-improving breakthroughs in the life sciences. Constraining peptides in well-defined 3D conformations is a powerful method. Pepscan developed a surprisingly simple, yet elegant principle to do so. Its CLIPS™ technology can create mono-, bi- and, in combination with click chemistry, even up to hexa-cyclic formats. “A super powerful tool. We know this from our own work, and it has been proven as well by Bicycle Therapeutics, to whom we granted a global CLIPS™ Technology license for two of their product candidates last year”, says Pepscan’s CSO Peter Timmerman, discussing the advantages in a dual interview with Michael Goldflam, Director of Peptide Discovery at Pepscan.
