  • Company Description/Mission Statement:Wasted time is the enemy of cancer patients. KIYATEC’s mission is to change the future of cancer care by accurately predicting patient-specific response and non-response before treatment begins. We utilize the patient’s own living tumor cells to create functional 3D models to test a battery of cancer therapies in our CLIA and research laboratories. Our goal is to enable physicians to isolate only the effective treatments for their patients as quickly as possible – making true personalized medicine a reality. Our approach has been validated through engagements with leading cancer hospitals, multiple top 10 pharmaceutical companies and the NCI. We are conducting robust clinical trials to fully demonstrate the power of our approach and earn widespread adoption for a broad portfolio of products predicting response to today’s and tomorrow’s therapies.
