Achilles Therapeutics is a biopharmaceutical company developing novel cancer immunotherapies targeting clonal neoantigens: protein markers unique to each individual that are expressed on the surface of every cancer cell. Achilles uses DNA sequencing data from each patient, together with a proprietary bioinformatics platform, to identify clonal neoantigens specific to that patient and enable the development of personalised cell therapies. Targeting multiple clonal neoantigens that are present on all cancer cells, but not on healthy cells, allows individualised treatments to target and destroy tumours without harming healthy tissues.

XenoGesis Ltd. is a laboratory-based contract research organisation (CRO) specialised in preclinical drug metabolism & pharmacokinetics (DMPK), quantitative bioanalysis and expert interpretation. The core XenoGesis team has an enviable track record of delivery in drug discovery.
It is clear that identifying poor compounds early through scientific rigor is key in preventing progression into more expensive pre-clinical tests. Even a minor improvement in early-stage drug failure prediction will result in significant time and cost savings for R&D companies. Specifically,XenoGesis can identify the potential 'winners' and 'losers' in a selection of compounds synthesised in drug discovery campaigns. Moreover, providing iterative feedback to the research team based on the results and recommending next steps is a key focus for XenoGesis.
