Everything we do starts and ends with the patient

Addressing critical unmet needs for cancer patients is our goal. We believe that every decision should center around patients, from the earliest stages of research and discovery through clinical development.

The Janux Mission

Our mission is to discover and deliver innovative tumor-activated therapies that transform cancer patients’ lives.

Our History

Since our inception in 2017, we’ve successfully built an innovative culture that encourages scientific creativity within the bounds of our data-driven decision-making philosophy. This enabled our agile R&D team to efficiently discover numerous novel preclinical candidates: each of our unpartnered pipeline assets was discovered in 2020.
