Pandion Therapeutics aims to address the unmet needs of patients living with autoimmune diseases with development of novel therapeutics.

One of its lead product candidates, PT101, uses a mutin effector module with a chitin backbone to selectively expand regulatory T cells inside and outside of the body without activating cells that promote inflammation, such as natural killer cells. A key part of Pandion’s early-stage research and discovery pipeline is to expand its existing library of effector and tether modules.
