We strive to improve patients’ lives

Our work began in 2006, when a small group of scientists decided to change the way we fight cancer. Today, there are more than 220 of us. Our state-of-the-art headquarters are located in the heart of the innovative Utrecht Science Park in The Netherlands. You can also find our global team working through our subsidiary Merus US, Inc. in the biotech hub of Cambridge, Massachusetts (US) and working remotely around the world.

We are developing potentially first and best-in-class therapeutics to treat cancer. Our Multiclonics® therapeutics are bispecific (Biclonics®) and trispecific (Triclonics®) antibodies that bind to multiple targets. These are manufactured with advantageous features for anti-cancer effects.

With multiple candidates in the clinic and a robust array of preclinical candidates moving toward development, our dream is becoming a reality. Our goal is to become a leading oncology product company developing innovative multispecific antibodies to treat various types of cancer.

We care deeply about improving patients’ lives. This is why we are committed to getting this right, with a global and diverse team of highly qualified professionals. We have bold aspirations. Because the need is great, and the patients are waiting.

Step by step, we are closing in on cancer.
