Juno founders set their sights on creating an ‘epic’ new biotech with high-rolling investors at their back

Steve Harr has been busy.

Over the past 9 months or so, the former Juno CFO who helped break ground on CAR-T tech has been creating a new biotech called Sana Biotechnology with some big goals in mind.
