Work for NantKwest

“…in the early 90s we were fortunate enough to discover this amazing cell from a cancer patient (of natural killer cells) that had all the killing activities but not the inhibitor receptors, so we surmised, could we grow this cell as a cell bank and actually inject this and kill cancer regardless of the cancer type - and that is what this NK cell is.”

-Patrick Soon-Shiong, NantKwest CEO

We have an incredible opportunity to potentially change the lives of cancer patients, and we are working hard to deliver on that promise.  Learn more about our technology or check out the opportunities to make a difference by joining our Kwest.
