Gaithersburg, Maryland – 12 March 2018: MaxCyte announced today that Debra K. Bowes, Executive Vice President, Business and Strategic Development, will present at two key life sciences conferences this month: the 12th Annual International Partnering Conference: BIO Europe Spring on March 14 at 9:45 a.m. CET (Amsterdam RAI Convention Center, Amsterdam) and the 2018 Sachs BioCapital USA Forum on March 21 at 2:40 p.m. EST (New York Academy of Sciences, New York, NY).
Ms. Bowes will present and discuss MaxCyte’s next-generation autologous CAR (chimeric antigen receptor) therapies. In her presentation, Ms. Bowes 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.
“We’re excited to share the progress we’ve made in advancing our novel and proprietary CARMA platform and CAR therapy drug candidates with scientific and industry audiences at these two important life sciences meetings,” said Ms. Bowes. “Our goal is to advance our first CAR therapy into the clinic this year, and we are excited to have a forum to share the potential for our CARMA platform’s approach in a broad range of targets and cancers, including solid tumors, while reducing potential adverse events that have been evident with previous CAR technologies.
