Topic: An introduction of Catalym
Catalym has identified GDF-15 as a central regulator of the immune system in the tumor microenvironment. We are pioneering the reversal of GDF-15-mediated immunosuppression to induce a potent antitumoral immune reaction in non-responsive tumors. CatalYm’s lead program CTL-002 is poised to demonstrate clinical proof-of-concept in multiple solid tumor indications which will expand the treatment horizon for current and future immunotherapies.

Topic: How does life start?
Life begins with a transcriptionally silent embryo that is “awakened” to enable development. Despite the importance of this process, the reprogramming factors that activate embryonic transcription are largely unknown. We recently identified Nr5a2 as a key pioneer factor that awakens the mammalian genome.
