Rationally designed viruses for use as vaccines or solid tumor therapies

Codagenix is a clinical stage synthetic biology company that uses software to recode the genomes of viruses, constructing live-attenuated vaccines or viruses to prevent viral infections or treat solid tumors. Codagenix’s recoded vaccine candidates are a perfect antigenic match to the target virus and induce a robust immune response to all viral antigens. For cancer, our nimble platform allows us to turn a virus into a potential oncolytic immuno-oncology therapies. Both programs rely on scalable, low-cost manufacturing.

Safe and effective live-attenuated vaccines, presenting all target antigens

Target customized oncolytics to treat primary tumors and shrink off-site metastases


RSV hospitalizations among adults 65+ no vaccine

48.8 million

Flu cases in 2017-18, current vaccines <37% effective
