Renovaro Inc. (NASDAQ: RENB) and the Amsterdam UMC Cancer Center today announced an intended partnership and therefore signed an MoU to establish a joint company based in the Netherlands aimed at pioneering the next generation of personalized cancer immunotherapy. Both Renovaro and Amsterdam UMC emphasize the need to carry out the appropriate corporate and scientific due diligence before taking these next steps. Alongside the independent validation any final contractual commitments are subject to approval from both executive boards.

This collaboration would bring together Renovaro's proprietary cancer vaccine technology and the Cancer Center's expertise in several ancillary immunomodulatory technologies, towards innovative advancements in cancer treatment.

The proposed “Newco” will be headquartered in Amsterdam, The Netherlands. By merging Renovaro's cutting-edge vaccine technology with the Cancer Center's expertise, the aim is to develop personalized cancer immunotherapy solutions tailored to individual patients, overcoming immunotherapy resistance.

"We believe that by combining our expertise in cancer research and therapy with Renovaro's innovative allogenic dendritic vaccine technology, we can accelerate the development of personalized cancer treatments," said Prof. Geert Kazemier, Director of the Amsterdam UMC Cancer Center. "This once again represents our commitment to advancing cancer immunotherapy and improving patient outcomes."

"We are thrilled to partner with the Amsterdam UMC Cancer Center to drive innovation in cancer immunotherapy," said Coenraad K. van Kalken MD PhD, Director of RenovaroCube. "This collaboration represents a recognition of our potentially transformative technologies and a strategic alignment of our shared vision to change cancer treatment through personalized medicine. Also, as part of the MoU certain clinical activities would be moved to Amsterdam."

This new venture will operate independently, with a dedicated team of researchers collaborating closely with experts from both RenovaroBio and the Amsterdam UMC Cancer Center and will benefit from the combined resources, expertise, and extensive networks of its parent organizations, ensuring a strong foundation for success.

Both Renovaro and the Amsterdam UMC Cancer Center believe that the commitment to driving innovation in more non-invasive cancer therapies will enable significant strides in the fight against cancer, offering hope to patients worldwide.
