Scenic Biotech BV (est 2017) is a spin out company from the Netherlands Cancer Institute and Oxford University that aims to unlock ‘genetic off-switches’ for rare genetic diseases and cancer. Scenic Biotech is located in Amsterdam, one of the most vibrant European cities and is consistently ranked among the worlds’ cities with the highest quality of life.

The science behind Scenic focuses on the identification of disease suppressing genes, which until recently have proven problematic to uncover. As highlighted in several recent articles in Nature and Science, Scenic’s propriety technology “Cell-Seq” changes the game. Scenic will apply its target identification platform to systematically screen for genes that suppress processes that go awry in disease. These genes serve as a starting point for drug development programs aimed to rebalance a variety of serious diseases. The first in-house lead program in the immuno-oncology space is the result of this approach and additional programs in other indications, particularly rare diseases with unmet medical need, are in progress.
