GenCC GmbH is focusing on utilizing the popular genome-editing tool CRISPR/Cas for cancer therapy. Due to the major advances in gene editing (e.g. CRISPR / Cas 9), and molecular tumor profiling of different types of cancer in recent years, personalized cancer therapy is increasingly becoming the focus of attention in cancer research.
GenCC GmbH will not go towards cancer immunotherapies because a lot of big pharmaceutical companies are already advancing in such therapies with substantial research funds. The main focus is on utilizing the CRISPR/Cas technology in vivo for personalized cancer therapy.
The theoretical framework of the project has been already designed and developed. Experiments for the initial proof-of-concept will be performed in B-cell lymphomas which can be done in a laboratory with security level 1. In this phase of the project, we are not aiming to test any cancer stem cells. After proving the basic feasibility of the approaches and submitting the payment we will reach the second phase of our project which further therapy and questions come into focus.
GenCC GmbH is an independent start-up company which in the first phase funded by its own money, still possible to supplement by research funding, etc. After obtaining the patents, GenCC GmbH will increase its funds through rounds of capital and/or milestone-related research cooperation with larger pharmaceutical companies. The Initial Public Offering (IPO) will not be also excluded. At the moment a small team of competent biotechnologists is being put together to advance the research. The location of GenCC GmbH in Heidelberg offers us a good opportunity for the development of GenCC GmbH, particularly through future collaborations with the University of Heidelberg or German Cancer Research Center (DKFZ) (e.g. master's theses for students, doctoral theses or research collaborations).
