Tillman Gerngross, Adagio CEO

Q&A: Till­man Gern­gross ex­plains why his Covid mAb will have an edge over an al­ready crowd­ed field

If any­one knows about mon­o­clon­al an­ti­bod­ies, it’s se­r­i­al en­tre­pre­neur, Adimab CEO, and Dart­mouth pro­fes­sor of bio­engi­neer­ing Till­man Gern­gross.
