  • JB Therapeutics

    JB Therapeutics, a clinical stage biopharmaceutical company, is developing JBT-101 a nanomolar cannabinoid agonist which activates the CB2 receptor present on immune cells and fibroblasts. Upon binding CB2, JBT-101 stimulates the production of specific lipid mediators (PGJ2, LXA4) which act to turn off inflammation and fibrosis. The product is a pharmaceutical capsule containing a pure synthetic derivative of THC with minimal blood brain barrier penetration. It is currently being developed as a potential disease modifying treatment for the orphan disease scleroderma.

  • Jounce Therapeutics

    Jounce Therapeutics is a private company launched in 2013 and based in Cambridge, Massachusetts. The company is dedicated to transforming the treatment of cancer by focusing on the discovery and development of first-in-class cancer immunotherapies designed to work not by treating a patient's tumor directly, but instead by harnessing the patient's immune system to seek out and attack cancerous cells and tumors.
