Bethesda, MD (PRWEB) June 14, 2005
Estco Medical today announced the launch of a new web site for MacroGenics at http://www.macrogenics.com. Based in Rockville, Maryland, MacroGenics is a biotechnology company focused on the development of therapeutic antibodies to treat patients with cancer, autoimmune disorders, allergy, and infectious diseases and vaccines to prevent infections in healthy individuals. The new site serves to track the progress of MacroGenicsÂ product portfolio and proprietary technology platforms.
MacroGenics consulted Estco Medical to design a professional site and to develop an online information center that provides up-to-date content for biotech professionals, collaborators, researchers, investors, and potential employees. Estco created a graphic design and site structure that portrays the companyÂs product development strategy and powered the site with Medigent CMS to easily administer updates to the evolving content.
The information architecture was developed to provide primary background content and media relations as well as site specific sections about MacroGenics' product pipeline. Estco also developed an interactive illustration of MacroGenicsÂ Fc receptor technology for the site which can easily be incorporated for presentation purposes.
"The web site not only looks professional, but nicely depicts our product focus in a descriptive and informative manner. The seamless integration with Medigent CMS allows each department to manage their respective site areas to monitor and maintain corporate updates," said Michael Richman, Chief Operating Officer of MacroGenics.
