Puma Biotechnology, Inc., is a development stage biopharmaceutical company developing PB-272 (oral neratinib), a potent irreversible tyrosine kinase inhibitor, for the treatment of patients with HER2 positive metastatic breast cancer.

Meditope Biosciences is developing best-in-class antibody-based cancer products. Discovered at City of Hope, Meditope's technology is capable of turning any monoclonal antibody (mAb) into a proprietary, site-specific "Lego-like" system that is able to attach and detach drugs to antibodies without the need for chemical conjugation. The result is a memAb (meditope-enabled mAb) product that is significantly more effective and offers multiple manufacturing advantages compared to existing antibody-drug conjugate technologies.

Neumedicines Inc. is a privately held biotechnology company developing protein therapeutics that address unmet clinical and societal needs in the areas of Oncology, Hematology and Immunology. NMIL12-1 (recombinant human interleukin-12 or rHuIL-12), the company’s lead product in development, targets multiple pathways of hematopoiesis and innate immunity and is being developed to address a broad range of clinical indications. 

Lion Biotechnologies is focused on the development and commercialization of novel cancer immunotherapies based on tumor infiltrating lymphocytes (TILs).  This approach, also known as adoptive T-cell therapy, was developed by Dr. Steven A. Rosenberg at the National Cancer Institute and is currently in use at leading cancer centers in the US.

The SoCalBio Business Mixer bring together leaders from all segments of the life-science industry to share insights and learn about:

  • Innovation best practices
  • Device and biotech business trends
  • Technology convergence opportunities, and 
  • Broad-reaching public policies shaping the commercialization of innovations and healthcare service delivery in the U.S. and abroad.
