Imperial College London has licensed a new cell therapy technology to Australian company SUDA Pharmaceuticals.

The technology, developed by Professor Tassos Karadimitrus and his team at Imperial’s Centre for Haematology, is based on the invariant natural killer T (iNKT) cell, a rare immune cell.

You can read more about the technology, and the license deal, in this longform article by Dr David Silverman.
