Company Description

Jasper Therapeutics is a start-up company out of Stanford University with a lead clinical-stage program that is a first-in-class and potentially breakthrough antibody to safely replace chemo-radiation as a conditioning agent for diseases for which hematopoietic cell transplants (HCT) of allogeneic or gene-modified cells are the only known curative therapy. These diseases include but are not limited to rare genetic blood diseases such as the primary immune deficiency diseases, hemoglobinopathies, and myeloid disorders including myelodysplastic syndrome and acute myeloid leukemia. Additional potential indications include immune tolerance induction for the cure of autoimmune disorders and to facilitate acceptance of solid organ transplants. By creating novel, safe and highly effective conditioning regimens for hematopoietic transplantation, Jasper is leading the field with innovative clinical trials to safely bring cures to patients suffering from a variety of life-threatening diseases.

The Jasper vision is to build a leading biotechnology company to advance the field of hematopoietic cell transplantation by leveraging its basic and translational science to generate a pipeline of innovative therapeutics in the areas of HCT conditioning, immune modulation, cell engineering and gene editing therapies.
