VectivBio (Nasdaq: VECT) is a global, clinical-stage biotechnology company focused on the discovery, development and commercialization of innovative treatments for severe rare conditions with high unmet medical need. Formed in 2019 as a spin-off from Therachon, a biotech company acquired by Pfizer, the Company went public in April of this year – less than two years after inception!

VectivBio is headquartered in Basel, Switzerland, and maintains a presence in the U.S. where it is listed on the Nasdaq exchange. Its product candidate, apraglutide, is a next-generation, long-acting synthetic GLP-2 analog being developed for a range of rare gastrointestinal diseases where GLP-2 can play a central role in addressing disease pathophysiology, including short bowel syndrome with intestinal failure (SBS-IF) and Acute Graft-Versus-Host Disease (aGVHD). Following VectivBio’s successful acquisition of Comet Therapeutics in September, VectivBio’s pipeline has since expanded to include the CoMET Platform, a modular small molecule platform designed to address severe Inherited Metabolic Diseases (IMDs) in pediatric populations.

Join us in hearing from Luca Santarelli, M.D., Ph.D., Founder and CEO of VectivBio, who will speak about the Company’s journey to IPO and share his thoughts on key strategic business development considerations necessary to build a fully integrated global biopharmaceutical company.
