About Juno Therapeutics
Juno is focused on revolutionizing medicine by re-engaging the body’s immune system to treat cancer. Founded on the vision that the use of human T cells as therapeutics will drive one of the next important phases in medicine, we are developing cell-based cancer immunotherapies based on our chimeric antigen receptor (CAR) and high-affinity T cell receptor (TCR) technologies to genetically engineer T cells to recognize and kill cancer cells. We have shown compelling evidence of tumor shrinkage in clinical trials using multiple cell-based product candidates to address refractory B-cell lymphomas and leukemias. Longer term, Juno aims to develop our cell-based platform to include additional product candidates to address a broad range of cancers and human diseases.
