The final fifteen companies are chosen from hundreds of nominations submitted by readers and editors of FierceBiotech, a publication from Questex, LLC.
“The philosophy of Fierce 15 is a simple one: We want to see the best science combined with the best and brightest management teams," FierceBiotech editor Ben Adams said, "and we want to see that the promise they hold in their hands has—in this industry built on the all or nothing of risk and reward—a genuine chance of being the Next Big Thing.”
The Fierce 15 highlights privately held companies that are working to develop innovative products, services, or platforms that can advance the biotech industry and transform patient treatment.
“This year’s crop is the best-funded we’ve seen, and speaks volumes about the rude health of early-stage biomedical research this year,” Adams continued. “When we look at the science, the teams, and talk to their leaders, the key issue is the future: In the next five to ten years, will their product or platform produce something revolutionary and game-changing, and does it have a shot of becoming the new standard of therapy in its respective area.”
Below are the fifteen companies FierceBiotech predicts will shape the industry for years to come:
- Rubius Therapeutics
- Vividion Therapeutics
- Vir Biotechnology
- Axial Biotherapeutics
- Turnstone Biologics
- PMV Pharma
- Gritstone Oncology
- Tango Therapeutics
- Repare Therapeutics
- Magenta Therapeutics
- Vivet Therapeutics
- PsiOxus Therapeutics
- Aravive Biologics
- Relay Therapeutics
- BlackThorn Therapeutics
