One of the much anticipated cancer immunotherapy presentations at the 2017 JP Morgan Healthcare conference was by Neon Therapeutics CEO Hugh O’Dowd.
As readers know we’re riding the Immuno-Oncology wave on Biotech Strategy Blog, and one of the exciting new topics to emerge is whether we can target neoantigens to create personalized immunotherapy.
Our mini-series last year on neonatigens received a lot of attention. It included a primer and three interviews. We were very much of the opinion that Neon Therapeutics is a company to watch out for.
In case you missed them, here are the links:
- Primer on neoantigens
- Interview with Dr Cary Pfeffer, Neon Therapeutics ad interim CEO and Board member
- Interview with Dr Cathy Wu, Neon Therapeutics Scientific Founder
- Interview with Prof Ton Schumacher, Neon Therapeutics Scientific Founder
I highly recommending reading these articles as background on the science and new product development as a prelude to the latest commercialisation update we will cover in today’s post.
What did we learn from the 2017 JP Morgan presentation of the Neon Therapeutics corporate strategy?
If you didn’t make it to the presentation at JPM17 in San Francisco (it wasn’t webcast), you may be interested in this post. This is the latest update in our on-going series on neoantigens and why they matter in cancer immunotherapy.
