Mission: Genenta Science has one primary goal, to develop a new generation of gene therapies based on transcriptional and microRNA-mediated control focused on treating cancers. It is currently developing a gene transfer strategy into haematopoietic stem/progenitor cells (HSPCs) to target the production of interferon expressing monocytes/macrophages. Interferon production is being focused on because it exhibits powerful, anti-tumor activity, although clinical use is limited by its high toxicity. Using a combination of transcriptional and microRNA-mediated control,
