About Hemab


Is a clinical-stage biotech company developing the first prophylactic therapeutics for serious, underserved bleeding and thrombotic disorders. Based in Cambridge, MA and Copenhagen, Denmark, Hemab is progressing a pipeline of monoclonal and bispecific antibody-based therapeutics to transform the treatment paradigm for patients with high unmet need. While patients with common bleeding and thrombotic disorders have had access to preventative treatments for more than a half-century, no such measures exist for less-common disorders.

It’s time to ensure that every patient with a clotting disorder has the security and peace of mind they deserve. Our teams are global, diverse and committed to collaboration, excellent research and swift development of our potential therapies.
