Apollo Therapeutics has secured $33.5m in a second round of Series C funding to advance its pipeline programmes.
The latest financing takes the total funds raised in 2023 to $260m.
Healthcare investment company Patient Square Capital spearheaded the funding round, with new investors, including M&G, and two public pension plans in the US taking part.
The second round of Series C funding also saw contributions from current investor Rock Springs Capital.
Apollo plans to utilise the latest funds to progress the development of its pipeline programmes to the clinic, as well as to support its drug discovery and development works. These works are based on breakthroughs in basic medical research at its partner organisations.
The funds will be allocated to license or acquire more clinical-stage programmes that align with the strict selection criteria of Apollo.
