SQZ Biotech

SQZ Biotech’s CellSqueeze enables the delivery of molecules into cells by a gentle squeezing. It was invented at MIT in the labs of Prof. Bob Langer and Prof. Klavs Jensen. It's shown 10-100x improvement relative to competing technologies for major unmet needs: primary cells and non-nucleid acid molecules (e.g. proteins). We own the exclusive license from MIT to any application. We started in the research market but plan to pursue higher impact applications (e.g. therapeutics) in the future.
