Developing a precision immune tolerance platform with the aim of improving the lives of patients suffering from serious and debilitating diseases

Who we Are

Over a decade of experience pioneering precision immune tolerance

Selecta Biosciences Inc., founded in 2008, is leveraging its clinically validated ImmTOR® platform to develop antigen-specific tolerogenic therapies. With the potential ability to induce tolerance to highly immunogenic molecules, ImmTOR® aims to restore the body’s natural immune system balance by re-imagining immunotherapy for autoimmune disease, as well as unlock the potential of gene therapy and amplifying the efficacy of biologic therapy. 

At Selecta, we strive toward a common goal: to use precision immune tolerance platforms to improve the lives of patients who suffer from serious and debilitating diseases.
