Laboratory Technician


 


COMPANY BACKGROUND


At WindMIL, we are harnessing the power of bone marrow derived lymphocytes to develop groundbreaking immunotherapies to treat cancer patients.  We have developed a proprietary process to activate and expand bone marrow derived T cells.  The result of this process is called Marrow Infiltrating Lymphocytes or MILs.  Owing to their derivation from the bone marrow, which is a natural reservoir for memory T cells, MILs have unique properties that make them well suited for autologous cell therapy.  MILs can be used in both non-gene modified and gene modified forms, and therefore form the basis for our broad technology platform.  Our lead program is a Phase 2 study in non-small cell lung cancer, and we have additional MILs programs in solid tumors advancing to the clinic.  MILs can also be used for CAR-T therapy (CAR-MILs) and WindMIL will shortly be advancing CAR-MIL products into the clinic as well.
