 • Company Description   
Ligand, being a biotechnology company, focuses on developing/acquiring royalty revenue generating assets and coupling them with a lean corporate cost structure.

Ligand has merged with CyDex. By this, it added an antibody-generating platform, OmniAb, to the company's portfolio. Its other technology platforms include antigen discovery platform & protein expression platform. All these technologies have created a strong platform for Ligand to seek new licenses and partnerships.
