Gritstone Oncology, Inc. Company Profile

00:31 EDT 24th May 2018 | BioPortfolio

Gritstone is a privately-held company developing personalized cancer immunotherapies to fight multiple cancer types. Gritstone brings together distinguished scientific founders, an experienced and diverse management team, a seasoned and successful board of directors and deep financial backing to tackle fundamental challenges at the intersection of cancer genomics, immunology, and immunotherapy design. The Company’s goal is to extend the benefits of immunotherapy by leveraging new insights into the immune system’s ability to destroy cancer cells, based on the study of patients treated with checkpoint inhibitors such as PD-(L)1 monoclonal antibodies. Gritstone’s approach seeks to generate a therapeutic immune response in these patients by unleashing the demonstrated natural power of a patient’s own immune system to recognize tumor-specific neoantigens, or TSNA, in order to destroy tumor cells. The importance of TSNA as targets for the immune system was first recognized in 2014 and 2015 by two of our co-founders, Dr. Timothy Chan and Dr. Naiyer Rizvi. Leveraging these insights, Gritstone has built a personalized immunotherapy approach on two key pillars—first, through its proprietary Gritstone EDGE™ artificial intelligence-based platform, conferring a powerful ability to predict, from a routine tumor biopsy, the TSNA that are presented on a patient’s tumor cells; and second, Gritstone’s ability to develop and manufacture a potent immunotherapy utilizing a patient’s unique TSNA to drive the patient’s immune system to attack and destroy tumors. Gritstone is headquartered in the San Francisco Bay Area with key functions located in Cambridge, MA and Pleasanton, CA. The company launched in August 2015 and has received funding from leading blue-chip biotechnology investors, including Versant Ventures, The Column Group, Clarus, Frazier Healthcare Partners, Lilly Asia Ventures, GV, Redmile Group and Casdin Capital.
