About SQZ

At SQZ Biotechnologies, we are working to unlock the full potential of cell therapies for patients around the world. The company and our platform technology have been named as one of Scientific American’s Top 10 World Changing Ideas, Fierce Biotech’s Fierce 15, and a World Economic Forum Technology Pioneer. We have active programs in oncology, autoimmune and infectious diseases, as well as additional exploratory initiatives to support future pipeline growth.

We are working to fundamentally change the way people think about cell therapies by breaking down scientific, clinical and manufacturing barriers.

Please see Nature’s recent profile piece on us.


Our cell stories are created through a dynamic collaboration between Armon Sharei (left) and Shirley Mao (right). When both were at MIT, they began using illustrations to distill complex topics and have teamed up again on the #HowCellsWork series.
