Progenitor Life Sciences LLC
Posted on: 03 Jan 18

Progenitor Life Sciences LLC today announced that it will present at Biotech Showcase™ 2018, January 8–10, during JPMorgan Healthcare Conference week.

Gary R. Sams, CEO, will present Wednesday January 10 at 10:45 a.m. PST.

Progenitor Life Sciences has developed a proprietary workflow to enable the Next Generation CAR-T development, including proprietary technologies for both autologous and “Off-the-Shelf” allogeneic approaches to therapy. The company’s technologies were developed by Progenitor in collaboration with the University of Utah.

The company also announced that it will open discussions for a Series A investment round to fund further development of its platform and prosecution of IP.

Sams stated, “We are excited to present at Biotech Showcase™. This event will be an extraordinary opportunity for Progenitor to highlight our unique CAR-T engineering platform, including new gene-switch technologies that allow control over CAR-T activity in vivo using medically safe small molecules, or by ‘programming’ cells in advance to respond automatically to specific environmental cues. The next generation of CAR-T cells will be safer and smarter, and Progenitor is leading the way with proprietary technologies that will be at the core of these new therapies. We look forward to engaging parties at Biotech Showcase™ and JPM who have interest in participating in our Series A round, as well as strategic collaborators who want to use our platform.”
