Cultural DNA

Kyverna is a different kind of place, where people of diverse scientific, industry and cultural backgrounds are working together to develop medicines that navigate complex territory – the human immune system. Our mandate is bold: to create a new class of living cell therapies to treat the underlying cause of autoimmune disease. This requires an interdisciplinary team that brings a range of scientific expertise – synthetic biology, immunology, advanced cell engineering and drug development capabilities – and an appetite for exploring and creating the unknown. Our commitment to employees is to foster an open, supportive and inclusive environment where we create opportunities for individuals and scientists at every level to learn and grow as people and professionals.


Our Credo

Navigating What’s Next in Autoimmune Therapy with Science of All Minds

We are a diverse team bringing trailblazing science to engineer and develop curative living medicines for the most devastating autoimmune diseases.

We are driven by the staggering unmet need for alternatives to existing therapies that may not be effective, or with chronic use can leave patients susceptible to opportunistic infections and malignancies.

We are programming SmarTcellTM therapies with selective immunosuppressive powers that provide sustained therapeutic benefit.

We will transform treatment of autoimmune disease to free patients from the siege of their own immune systems.
