Iovance is a late-stage biotechnology company developing novel T-cell-based cancer immunotherapies. Cellectis and Iovance have a research collaboration and exclusive worldwide license agreement whereby Iovance licenses certain TALEN® technology from Cellectis in order to develop tumor infiltrating lymphocytes (TIL) that have been genetically edited to create more potent cancer therapeutics.

“We are very excited to be collaborating with Cellectis in applying the TALEN® gene-editing technology to Iovance’s TIL product. We believe that we can genetically modify TIL to make a more tumor-reactive anti-cancer product. We plan to move a TALEN®-edited TIL therapy into a clinical trial as rapidly as possible.”

Maria Fardis, Ph.D., MBA, President and Chief Executive Officer of Iovance Biotherapeutics.
