Gaithersburg, Maryland – May 29, 2018 MaxCyte announced today that Debra K. Bowes, Chief Business Officer, CARMA Cell Therapy, will present at the 2018 BIO International Convention (Boston Convention Center) on June 6, 2018, at 2:45 p.m. ET.


Ms. Bowes will present and discuss MaxCyte’s next-generation autologous CAR (chimeric antigen receptor) therapies in a presentation entitled, “Novel CAR Platform: The Next Generation Autologous CAR Therapies in Oncology.” The presentation will focus on how MaxCyte’s breakthrough CARMA platform in immuno-oncology has the ability to engineer transient persistence to mitigate off-tumor toxicity and significantly reduce the turnaround time of autologous cell therapy to patients.


“It’s exciting to have the opportunity at the 2018 BIO International Convention to share the progress we’ve made in advancing our novel and proprietary CARMA platform and CAR therapy drug candidates,” said Ms. Bowes. “Our CARMA platform’s approach has potential in a broad range of targets and cancers, including solid tumors, while reducing potential adverse events that have been evident with previous CAR technologies. This is significant, now more than ever, as our goal is to advance our first CAR therapy into the clinic this year.”


The BIO International Convention is the largest global event for the biotechnology industry and attracts the biggest names in biotech, offers key networking and partnering opportunities, and provides insights and inspiration on major trends affecting the industry. More information can be found at
