Partnering with us

Akston is building deep partnerships around the world. We partner with Animal Health companies that can take our therapeutics to market or have their own candidates that we can help develop and manufacture. 

We offer partnership opportunities to established Veterinary Pharmaceutical companies and start-ups that would benefit from our Animal Health-dedicated product development and manufacturing resources to advance their own protein therapeutics.

If you are interested in speaking with us about partnering opportunities, please  contact us.
