Genedata, the leading provider of enterprise software solutions for biopharmaceutical R&D, today announced that Sanofi has expanded the use of Genedata Biologics® to new sites, groups, and application areas, including high-throughput engineering of next-generation multi-specific antibody therapeutics. 

“We chose Genedata Biologics to support our quickly growing biopharmaceutical R&D operations and enable scientific innovation, including R&D of novel modalities such as bi- and multi-specifics and other next-gen therapeutics,” said Rebecca Sendak, Ph.D., Senior Vice President of Global Large Molecules Research Platform at Sanofi.

Genedata Biologics is used by major biopharma R&D organizations as a backbone for integrating globally operating research groups. Due to its flexible and scalable architecture, it facilitates the onboarding and integration of new R&D groups.

A key driver for extending the use of Genedata Biologics was the ability of the platform to implement fully automated end-to-end processes for generating rich data packages around innovative multi-specific antibody therapeutics. In addition to acting as an automation platform, Genedata Biologics provides a foundation of structured and accessible data that can feed into AI/ML workflows.

The Genedata Biologics foundation is complemented with other Sanofi enterprise systems and together they contribute to optimizing overall R&D operations by:
a)    enabling users to monitor program performance, resource and project planning, and task prioritization.
b)    providing a means for scientists, managers, and executives to have real-time access to data, which is the basis for systematic and transparent decisions on the biotherapeutic candidates to be progressed to the clinic. 

“We are pleased that our long-term partner Sanofi continues to expand their usage of Genedata Biologics,” said Othmar Pfannes, Ph.D., CEO of Genedata. “The digital transformation of biopharmaceutical R&D is continuing at a rapid pace as companies strive to better organize and analyze their R&D data. We are excited that our technology is helping Sanofi and our other partners to develop innovative biotherapies faster.”
