McDermott Represents Moffitt Cancer Center in Strategic Alliance with Turnstone Biologics
International law firm McDermott Will & Emery represented Moffitt Cancer Center, a world leader in advancing cellular immunotherapies for the treatment of cancer, in its strategic alliance with Turnstone Biologics Corp., a clinical-stage biotechnology company developing next-generation immunotherapies to treat and cure solid tumors. Pursuant to this strategic alliance, which enhances and broadens the parties’ collaborative efforts to advance oncology research, Turnstone will have priority access to Moffitt’s scientific research, manufacturing, and clinical capabilities for the development of novel tumor infiltrating lymphocyte (TIL) therapies.
The parties also announced U.S. Food and Drug Administration clearance of an Investigational New Drug application for a Moffitt-sponsored Phase 1 clinical study of TIDAL-01, Turnstone’s lead TIL therapy candidate for cutaneous and non-cutaneous melanoma. The trial is expected to start late 2022.
