Targovax: Activating the patient's immune system to fight cancer

Targovax is a clinical stage biotechnology company developing immune activators to target hard to treat solid tumors. Immuno-oncology is currently one of the fastest growing therapeutic fields in medicine. Targovax’s lead product candidate, ONCOS-102, is a genetically modified oncolytic adenovirus, which has been engineered to selectively infect and replicate in cancer cells. It is used as a therapeutic cancer vaccine and has been shown to activate the immune system to generate tumor-specific immune responses. Targovax is also developing a neo-antigen cancer vaccine targeting tumors that express mutated forms of RAS. The TG vaccine program has shown a signal of efficacy in a 32-patient trial with TG01 in resected pancreatic cancer. Targovax has offices in both Oslo and Helsinki. 

We seek dedicated, passionate and hardworking individuals who will bring their experiences, unique perspectives and problem-solving skills to our team. In return, we cultivate an environment that rewards and recognizes hard work and provides opportunities for learning and growth as part of a team making a difference in the lives of patients by working towards our mission: Activating the patient’s immune system to fight cancer.
