Genocea’s mission is to conquer cancer by developing personalized cancer immunotherapies in multiple tumor types. Its unique ATLAS™ platform comprehensively profiles each patient’s T cell responses to potential targets, or antigens, on the tumor. ATLAS enables Genocea to optimize the neoantigens for inclusion in its immunotherapies and exclude inhibitory antigens that can exert an immunosuppressive effect. Genocea is advancing two ATLAS-enabled programs: GEN-009, its neoantigen vaccine for which Genocea is conducting a Phase 1/2a clinical trial and expect preliminary clinical results in the third quarter of 2020, and GEN-011, its neoantigen-specific cell therapy using T cells derived from peripheral blood for which Genocea expects to conduct a Phase 1/2a clinical trial. Genocea Biosciences, Inc. is headquartered in Cambridge, Massachusetts.
