Pioneering Massive Directed
Evolution to Unlock Infinite
Potential of Cell Therapy
Pioneering Directed Evolution of Immune Cells
To revolutionize cell therapy, we develop proprietary next-generation technologies that opens near-infinite
possibilities of cell therapy by:
We welcome you to join our mission of treating cancer with innovative science.
Get in touch today to learn more about the Cellinfinity Bio story.
Harness the power of natural selection to identify most robust genetic modifications that optimize immune cells' potency, persistence, infiltration
Engineer & create potent immune cells with technologies that are robust, reproducible, and highly efficient.
Create Diverse Pool
Generate large collection/library
of thousands of therapeutic
immune cells, each with unique
gain-of-function and/or loss-of-function gene modification.
We use directed evolution experiments to identify genetic modifications and CAR constructs that substantially improve engineered immune cell function against cancer.
These discoveries allow development of first-in-class (with proprietary gene modifications and unique targets/CARs) and best-in-class (with proprietary modifications and optimized CARs) products.
Our pipeline consists of genetically engineered T cell, NK cell and other immune cells that have potent activity against multiple malignancies including solid tumors.
Cellinfinity Bio is led by seasoned industry veterans, scientists, and business leaders.
