Since its inception, the RadImmune Therapeutics Leadership Team has been driven by the belief that additional tools are needed for the fight against cancer. To that end, RIT has developed proprietary technology and platform focused on the most challenging to treat cancers. In recognition of the excellent potential displayed in early pre-clinical work, RadImmune Therapeutics was awarded an SBIR Grant by the NIH/NCI thereby validating much of the research to date. RadImmune Therapeutics continues to advance preclinical development programs with the goal of launching a Phase 1 clinical trial late 2019.
Rad Immune Inc. is a start up biotechnology company whose expert multidisciplinary management team is committed to fostering research and development in molecular targeted radiotherapy (formerly known as radio immunotherapy). Our vision is that molecular targeted radiation therapy has significant untapped potential for offering effective, low toxicity drugs to the oncology market.
