06.04.2017 and LSNB event with T3 Pharma on cancer fighting bacteria and seed financing

T3 pharma is a spin-of from the Biozentrum of the University of Basel that has attracted extensive non-dilutive grant funding and has last year in record time also closed a seed round with private investors.

The company is exploiting on a naturally occurring bacterial protein secretion system that has been genetically engineered such that to solely deliver proteins of choice into the target cells. Together with the well-known bacterial preference of the bacteria to replicate at the site of solid tumors T3 pharma has created a highly efficient and targeted vehicle for delivery of therapeutic proteins into tumor cells forming the basis for the next generation cancer therapy.

This & LSNB event at Halle 7 (Gundeldingerfeld, Dornacherstrasse 192) in Basel, on April 6th, 2017 (19:00; door opening 18:45), will have Simon Ittig, founder and CEO of T3 pharma, talking about this story and sharing insights and learnings along the way.
