About Maverick Therapeutics
Biotech Company
Maverick,the biotech startup is researching ways to redirect the soldiers of the immune system, the T cells, so that they target tumors. But the antigens targeted by these redirected T cells are also expressed on healthy tissue, so redirection therapy can lead to serious side effects. Maverick says that its antibodies are designed to be inactive when they’re administered to the patient, but they become active in the presence of tumors. The company’s founders include Patrick Baeuerle, a cancer immunologist whose work focuses on T-cell redirection. Maverick did not say which cancers it would target first.
