ViroNovative BV

ViroNovative BV, established in 2002, is dedicated to providing a complete solution to human Metapneumovirus (hMPV), a virus discovered in 2001 at the Department of Virology, Erasmus MC. To this end, ViroNovative is co-developing diagnostics, vaccines, antibodies and antivirals for the detection, prevention and treatment of hMPV infection. With a strong network of industrial partners (to date 14 licenses on the hMPV patents are active) we generate new products and economic value.

ViroNovative and its founders have a strong but arms length relation with Viroclinics Biosciences BV and the Deptartment of Virology ErasmusMC Rotterdam under the vigis of Ab Osterhaus thereby unlocking the potential of almost 200 academically involved virologists and service- diagnostics- providers.

ViroNovative BV, a limited liability company, is a spin out company formed over ten years ago under the active incubator policy of Erasmus Medical Center Holding BV. Erasmus MC is one of the largest European academic hospitals (over fifiteen thousand employees) and consisitently ranks among the top Medical Schools and Research centers in Europe.

ViroNovative is housed in the new and state of the art dedicated research facilities and offices in the Rotterdam Science Tower (RST) a 60.000 square meter facility where small and medium sized companies in the life sciences find their home.
