Neoanti­gen play­er PACT Phar­ma woos Tim Moore from Kite to run tech­ni­cal ops

In cell ther­a­py, some of the biggest break­throughs lie not in the sci­ence of killing tu­mor cells but fig­ur­ing out a way to man­u­fac­ture those treat­ments at scale. Work­ing on a per­son­al­ized T cell ther­a­py tar­get­ing neoanti­gens, PACT Phar­ma knows just how im­por­tant — and dif­fi­cult — it can be to re­cruit a top-notch leader for the tech­ni­cal team.
