KSQ Therapeutics to Present First Data from its Proprietary CRISPRomics Discovery Engine – Business Wire

Posted: October 30, 2019 at 7:46 am

CAMBRIDGE, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--KSQ Therapeutics, a biotechnology company using CRISPR technology to enable the companys powerful discovery engine to achieve higher probabilities of success in drug development, today announced two upcoming presentations at leading scientific immuno-oncology congresses. The data demonstrate the capabilities of the companys proprietary CRISPRomics discovery engine, which allows genome-scale, in vivo validated, unbiased drug discovery.

There is a significant need for next-generation immuno-oncology therapies as the majority of cancer patients today experience an insufficient response to PD-1/PD-L1 therapies. The data we will be sharing demonstrate the potential of our CRISPRomics discovery platform to systematically identify and validate new cancer therapies for patients with PD-1 refractory solid tumors, said Frank Stegmeier, Ph.D., Chief Scientific Officer at KSQ Therapeutics. KSQ was founded on the premise that CRISPR-enabled functional genomics can improve on current approaches to drug discovery and, taken together, these poster presentations describing the output of our genome-scale in vivo T-cell screens show that our platform can do this with a high degree of precision and quality, pointing the direction towards promising avenues of drug development.
