Fresenius Kabi opens research and development center for biosimilars in Switzerland

Fresenius Kabi has opened a new research and development center for biosimilars in Eysins, in the Swiss canton of Vaud. The facility, in which the company invested about €15 million, will strengthen Fresenius Kabi’s capability to develop new biosimilars, particularly in the areas of autoimmune diseases and oncology. A biosimilar is a drug that is “similar” to another, already approved biologic drug. More than 100 employees representing over 20 nationalities work at the Eysins site, and the company plans to expand the workforce in the near future.
