Sivasankar Baalasubramanian (Shiv) PhD

CEO Stealth Startup

Shiv is a scientist turned entrepreneur with over 20 years of global experience in innovative research in immunology, combined with strong business and leadership accomplishments through entrepreneurship.

He is currently the CEO of stealth startup, an immunodiagnostics startup presently focused on the science of COVID-19 immunity elicited via infection or vaccination. The Startup has been involved with COVID-19 vaccine manufacturers, and academic institutions, in establishing and evaluating the cellular immunity to COVID-19. Shiv has spearheaded the establishment of various platforms at the startup that are instrumental in understanding a vaccine’s efficacy in eliciting and sustaining both T and B cell response, and further exploring how these responses are modulated under various booster dose combinations. In addition, the startup developed a simple and rapid, blood-based test that will allow one to test for T cell immunity against COVID-19 without requiring high-end research infrastructure. The test has now been used by vaccine manufacturers to screen study subjects for inclusion in, or exclusion from, a study or clinical trial. These robust and multi-faceted platforms that the startup has developed for the in-depth study of COVID-19 vaccines is easily adaptable to any disease and vaccine, depending on the need of the hour, in an accelerated timeframe.

Shiv’s previous entrepreneurial experience saw him embark on an ambitious mission to build and establish a high-end products and services entity for the UK/US-based Indoor Biotechnologies in the Asia Pacific market for immunology and allergy needs. He served as its executive director for over 6 years and during his highly successful tenure, he developed and marketed a vast portfolio of cuttingedge, innovative solutions in the areas of immunology, allergy, inflammation, immuno-oncology, and anti-viral testing. The company catered to academia and industries involved in the development of biologics, diagnostics and FMCG products.

During his career in academia, Shiv served as a Principal Investigator at the Singapore Institute for Clinical Sciences, where he built and established a new research program to probe the immunobiology of viral diseases leading to the demonstration of the seminal role of the complement system in survival following influenza infection.

Prior to this, Shiv was a recipient of the prestigious Wellcome Trust traveling and research fellowship, leading him to the School of Medicine, Cardiff University, UK, where he identified a unique and previously unknown role for CD59 in augmenting T cell immunity in infection and cancer.

PEPperPRINT GmbH is a German Biotech company developing infectious disease research solution by offering high-density peptide microarrays. We focus on producing 3D molecular printed peptide libraries- by coupling individual amino acids in situ, thereby offering customized high-density PEPperCHIP® Peptide Microarrays for in-depth analysis of epitopes, antibody validation, antigen discovery. The on-chip synthesis of peptides can be in linear or Cyclic form and our proprietary laser-printing technology can synthesize tens of thousands of peptides directly on the chip.

The viral proteome is translated into overlapping peptides and printed onto glass slides, following which the patient sera is incubated on the chip and antibodies present in the sample bind to epitopes recognized within individual peptides. The resulting response profile may be compared across different samples to monitor B-cell responses over time, or to determine immunodominant epitopes that may be further validated as potential disease-specific biomarkers for IVD development.

Moreover, PEPperPRINT provides the Human Epitome Microarray with more than 23,000 human database epitopes for antibody cross-reactivity profiling and numerous other peptide microarrays for vaccine development as well as cancer, infectious disease, and autoimmune research. What we can do with our peptide microarrays is narrow down the binding site of an antibody to its antigen, not only down to the epitope with single amino acid resolution, but also to identify conserved and variable amino acid positions and from there, deduce the cross-reactivity of an antibody.

PEPperPRINT has ~30 readily available Viral peptide chips (eg: H5N1, Zika (Mr766),CHIKV, HBV, DENV etc.) which includes also PEPperCHIP® SARS-CoV-2 Proteome & the PEPperCHIP® Pan-Corona Spike Protein Microarrays. We are currently performing many large-scale studies of Covid-19 Immune response study across various Institute of National Importance.
