SOLUTIONS with/in/sight: Cells in the City

Wednesday, November 29, 2017 at 6:00pm to 8:30pm

Koch Institute for Integrative Cancer Research, 156 Bldg. 76, 500 Main St., Cambridge, MA. 02142

They may not have won seven Emmys and eight Golden Globes; yet projects from the Koch Institute Frontier Research Program have hit the big time! Join MIT’s Koch Institute for Integrative Cancer Research for an evening of presentations and conversation about two daring cancer research projects turned start-up, breaking new ground as they enter the marketplace and move into the clinic. SQZ Biotechnologies is disrupting both cell membranes and biopharma with its cell-squeezing technology for cell therapies, including promising new-to-immunotherapy approaches. Lumicell illuminates cancer at the cellular level, for real-time action during surgery and forward-thinking action in industry. Hear from lead scientists and their corporate partners about their journeys from bench to biotech, and find out how grassroots funding from the Koch Institute’s signature Frontier Research Program helped propel these high-risk ideas into high-reward technology.
