Refresh Can’t Get Enough of Basel!

This is a past event, Refresh London is coming up next month, keep an eye open on this space! 😉

Basel is one of the most vivid cities in terms of biotechnological and pharmaceutical research, development and production. We liked it so much last year we had to make another stop! So, you’re invited to join us and the rest of the Basel biotech gang for a relaxed biotech meetup on our home turf on the 9th October 2018.

Get ready to meet some great people, listen to some awesome speakers, and enjoy some free beer. You will be able to find us at Halle Sieben looking super cool in our Labiotech t-shirts.

Thanks to BaseLaunch for being such a cool partner and both NIBC and for supporting us 😉


Ulf Grawunder, CEO & founder of NBE Therapeutics is first up for the speakers. Ulf has been an entrepreneur working on antibodies since he started his first company, 4-Antibody, in 2004, and he moved on when it was acquired by Aegnus in 2014. He started a new company, NBE Therapeutics, in Basel to move into ADCs and iron out the kinks. He’s been rocking it here and has invented two new patent-pending techs to develop innovative antibody-based drugs, including next-generation ADCs for cancer therapies.

Our second speaker is Chandra Leo, Partner at HBM Partners. If you’re interested in Venture Capital then Chandra is a great person to talk to. He has over 15 years experience and is currently a partner at HBM Partners, one of the world’s large investment groups focused on healthcare and life sciences. Chandra is also on the board of a lot of different companies such as Symbiomix Therapeutics, Delenex Therapeutics, & ChenoCentryx for the HBM investments. He’s an investment guru!
