Areas of Focus:


  • Novel, biologically tractable tumor associated antigens
  • Multi-targeting strategies to overcome resistance associated with tumor heterogeneity
  • Conditional activation approaches for biologics that are not pH or protease dependent. Can also include combination strategies to improve tumor penetration
  • Tumor models that accurately recapitulate lymphoid, myeloid, and stromal complexities inherent in vivo, ideally amenable for new phenotypic drug screens
  • Assay platforms for the discovery of small molecules that target RNA
  • Protein stabilization and degradation technologies
  • Innate lymphoid cell target(s)
  • Allogeneic, solid tumor targeting, CAR-modified cell therapies (alpha beta or gamma delta T cells or NK)


  • Novel opportunities and technologies in CNS area (especially genetic disease)
  • AAV technologies (especially the technology for repeat dosing, and effective technology even with pre-existing antibody)
  • DDS technologies of small molecular compound or nucleic acid to specific tissue (cf. brain) except liver
