Immunocore: Immunocore is a T cell receptor (TCR) company, a global biotech striving to transform medical practice in the most challenging disease areas. At Immunocore we are focused on delivering first-in-class biological therapies to patients, using our highly innovative soluble TCR platform, and ImmTAC® molecules, a new class of precision-engineered drugs with ultra-high affinity for intracellular cancer targets. ImmTAC molecules naturally recognise cancer cells and cause their destruction through re-directing and activating the patient’s own immune system. This novel class of immunotherapy has the potential to treat a broad spectrum of diseases with high unmet medical need, not only cancers, but also infectious diseases and autoimmune diseases.
