About A2 Biotherapeutics A2 Bio is a biotech company in Agoura Hills, California. Our goal is to produce a new kind of cell therapy to treat solid tumor cancers.

A2 Bio’s scientists have invented the Tmod™ cell therapy platform to tackle the fundamental challenge in solid tumor treatment—the ability of cancer medicines to distinguish between tumor and normal cells. The Tmod™ mechanism utilizes two receptors to exploit common, specific gene losses in tumors which demarcate the tumor from normal cells. A2 Bio is strongly driven by our commitment to highest quality science, passion to revolutionize treatment for solid tumors, and urgency to bring cell therapies to cancer patients. The combination of talented, hard-working people with the robust Tmod™ platform has fueled the advancement of our pipeline and publications in peer-reviewed scientific papers in the cell therapy field.
