About Strike Pharma (www.strikepharma.com)
Headquartered in Uppsala, Sweden, Strike Pharma is using the company’s proprietary Adaptable Drug Affinity Conjugate (ADAC) technology to take precision medicine to a new level, enabling development of truly individualized immunotherapeutic treatments based on the genetic profile of each patient’s tumor.

Today, Strike Pharma’s development program is focused on selection of novel, clinically-relevant candidates for use as immunotherapeutic vaccines in the treatment of solid tumors. However, the company is confident that the ADAC technology platform has the potential to facilitate development of many other antibody-based therapeutics and that this novel approach will have a significant impact across a wide variety of disease indications within the rapidly developing field of personalized medicine.
Strike Pharma was founded in 2020 with the aim of commercializing ADAC technology. Investors include Eir Ventures, Flerie Invest, Uppsala University Invest, Almi Invest, SLU Invest and Monesi Förvaltnings.
