Our lead program is addressing a primary mechanism of resistance and relapse to the currently available Chimeric Antigen Receptor T-cell (CAR T) therapies. Despite advances made by commercially available autologous CARs, these treatments are only curative for less than half of all cancer patients. In addition, far too many patients are unable to access these potentially curative therapies due to other challenges, including manufacturing, supply, time, and reimbursement. CARGO is actively working on novel solutions to achieve better outcomes and experiences. Our mission is to outsmart cancer and develop the next generation of best-in-class CARs. Beyond our lead program, our platform technologies enable the multiplex engineering necessary to overcome multiple mechanisms of tumor resistance, to counter inhibition by solid tumors, and in the allogeneic setting to evade immune rejection. - -We have the capability to incorporate complex therapeutic cargo into our CARs, with the potential to achieve durable responses that are curative for more patients. - -Our founders are pioneers and world experts in CAR T cell therapy, and we have built a team with experience and success developing, manufacturing, launching and commercializing oncology and cell therapy products. CARGO colleagues share a passion to help others thrive. - -We are tenacious in the relentless pursuit of our mission, and we innovate to change the game for the patients we serve.Join us to help make a difference! -EEO & EMPLOYMENT ELIGIBILITY -Cargo Therapeutics is committed to building a diverse, equitable, and inclusive company.
