The company was founded by Dr. Chris Garcia, Stanford University Professor and Howard Hughes Medical investigator. Synthekine is based on our unique insights on how cytokines bind to their receptors and how these systems can be tuned though ligand engineering. Synthekine was formed in 2019 and has raised its Series A venture capital round from Canaan Partners, Samsara Biocapital, and The Column Group, three leading Bay Area biotech venture funds. The company is based in Menlo Park, CA and has built integrated research, manufacturing, and in-vivo pharmacology capabilities. Synthekine is advancing a deep pipeline that includes several preclinical programs, including biased versions of Interleukin-2 and Interferon Gamma. These cytokines have been tuned to decouple anticancer and anti-inflammatory activity at the molecular level, a differentiated approach to developing selective therapeutics.
