Ambrx and Bristol-Myers Squibb have agreed to discover and develop antibody-drug conjugates using Ambrx’ protein medicinal chemistry technology. In exchange for commercial rights, BMS will supply Ambrx $15 million up front, R&D funding, and up to $97 million per product upon reaching certain milestones.
