Genocea Biosciences Inc.

Harnessing human T cells to select antigens for vaccines

This article was originally published in Start Up

Executive Summary

Genocea Biosciences Inc. is one of a growing number of companies betting that it can stimulate the body’s T-cell response against particular antigens, and so create vaccines against pathogens never before bested by man, such as malaria, herpes and chlamydia. Like others working to develop new vaccines, Genocea suspects that the ability to conjure cellular immunity on demand could offer not only prophylaxis, but also therapeutic options to individuals already infected by pathogens. Many believe that T-cell-stimulating vaccines could eventually help people whose own cells have become cancerous.
