Our Science

The immune system is the human body’s defense system against disease. In this system, cytokines are important signaling proteins that modulate immune responses. A group of cytokines called interleukins are responsible for regulating the function of the immune system.

We are developing engineered cytokine technology platforms to combat cancers and infectious diseases. Our STARTM and IL-15 technologies are based on the cytokines interleukin-2 and interleukin-15 and can jump start the immune system by activating and expanding immune cells in the body.
