Medicago believes in the power of plants to help protect public health. Our journey started in 1999 with one objective: to help protect human life and today, we are a leader in developing vaccines and therapeutics manufactured in plants. Our plant-based technology allows us to swiftly develop vaccines and therapies that can respond to pandemic situations and endemic diseases.

Our platform develops both vaccine and antibody candidates and is one of the few in the world with this capability. As Medicago continues with the research and development of vaccine candidates to help protect human health against viruses, we seek to expand our scope beyond viral diseases.

Our teams are working to develop vaccines, antibodies and therapeutic proteins that can be used, among other things, to fight infectious diseases and cancers. Medicago’s vaccine production platform is also capable of producing monoclonal antibodies artificially produced to treat a disease.

At Medicago, we’re proud of our humble beginnings as well as our evolution from an R&D company to bringing our first commercial products to market. We are growing our global capabilities but our roots in Quebec and Canada will always remain. Medicago has been a privately-held company since 2013.
