About Immuneering Corporation
More than half of all tumors rely on overactivation of the RAS/RAF/MEK pathway, yet existing drugs targeting this pathway are limited by toxicity, resistance or narrowly focused on subpopulations with specific mutations. Immuneering’s novel drug candidates spare healthy normal cells by modulating signaling dynamics to focus therapeutic impact against tumor cells. Immuneering’s platform uniquely characterizes these changes in signaling dynamics, a new approach to creating medicines that are potentially safer, more effective and more broadly applicable to larger patient populations.
