Our Pipeline

Diverse pipeline of innate cell engagers designed to activate innate immunity

A number of clinical and preclinical programs are in development based on the ROCK® platform and our tetravalent bispecific immune cell engagers have already shown a favorable safety profile and promising signs of therapeutic efficacy.
