Personalized Immunotherapies for Each Cancer Patient

Developing the Next Generation of Personalized Cancer Immunotherapies

The minerals quartz, micas, feldspar, calcite, and clay make up gritstone

Our Vision

Gritstone Oncology is working to cure cancer on a personalized level. We develop potent, artificial intelligence-driven, patient-specific immunotherapies that harness the power of the patient’s own immune system to recognize targets displayed by the tumor. These targets, called antigens, can be weaponized by the immune system to effectively destroy tumor cells.

Pioneering Advancements for Targeting Tumors

Using our EDGE™ platform, Gritstone has identified

Tumor-specific neoantigens

Antigens derived from mutated proteins found on the surface exclusively in tumor cells. Since they are only found in tumor cells, tumor-specific neoantigens make excellent targets for cancer immunotherapy.

Shared Tumor-Specific Antigens

Antigens found in limited normal tissues and tumor tissue. Shared tumor-specific antigens are shared across some patients; one therapy can treat many patients.
