About CERo Therapeutics

CERo Therapeutics, Inc. is a privately held biopharmaceutical company pioneering cell-based therapies that incorporate multiple forms of tumor clearance into single cells. The company’s CER-T platform lies at the intersection of innate and adaptive cell clearance, combining the body’s natural signaling mechanisms, which are capable of recognizing and disposing of unwanted cells, with traditional T cell killing. This integrated approach draws on recent advances in molecular immunology and insights related to the downstream signaling of specialized receptors that cooperate to ingest and eliminate dangerous cells and pathogens.
