About Emergence Therapeutics
Emergence Therapeutics is a European biopharmaceutical company developing novel antibody drug conjugate (ADC) immuno-therapeutics to treat high-need cancers. Its lead program, ETx-1, uses innovative linker technology and the proprietary payload amanitin to target Nectin-4 – an important and validated target for a broad range of cancers. Emergence is developing ETx-01 to target cancers with Nectin-4 expression and 17p deletions, areas of high unmet need. Beyond ETx-01 Emergence is actively exploring opportunities to develop further best- or first-in-class ADCs driven by therapeutic need.
Emergence has entered into a licensing and collaboration agreement with SATT Sud-Est (the regional tech transfer office for Aix-Marseille Université, CNRS and Inserm) through which the Company has been granted exclusive rights to a set of anti-Nectin-4 antibodies developed by Dr. Marc Lopez at the Cancer Research Center of Marseille, France. SATT Sud-Est is also providing financial support to the Emergence program.
ETx-01 is being developed under a licensing and collaboration agreement with Heidelberg Pharma Research GmbH, a subsidiary of Heidelberg Pharma AG. Through this agreement Emergence has access to Heidelberg Pharma’s amanitin-based payloads and corresponding linkers (proprietary ATAC Technology). Heidelberg Pharma Research is also a founding investor in Emergence.
Emergence is led by a strong management team and is supported by a network of world-leading scientists who have contributed significantly to the field of immuno-oncology. Emergence is based in Duisburg, Germany with a subsidiary in Marseille, France. For more information, please visit: www.emergencetx.com.
