The financing round comes weeks after Sensei shared clinical data on the effect of combining its lead asset SNS-301 with Merck’s checkpoint inhibitor Keytruda...SNS-301 is the most advanced example of Sensei’s immunophage approach. Sensei is engineering noninfectious lambda bacteriophage viruses to display target antigens.
