About Arcus

PEOPLE AND SCIENCE ARE a Beautiful Combination

Arcus is at the forefront of designing combination therapies, with best-in-class potential, in our relentless pursuit of cures for cancer.

World-Class Discovery Capabilities

Founded in 2015, Arcus Biosciences is a highly productive, clinical-stage, global biopharmaceutical company with the goal of developing best-in-class molecules and combination therapies for people with cancer. Our team of scientists, physicians, advisors and other leaders is focused on targeting well-understood biological targets and pathways where there is an opportunity to develop new medicines with a potentially improved safety and efficacy profile.

Arcus is at the forefront of designing combination therapies, with best-in-class potential, in our relentless pursuit of cures for cancer.

One of Arcus’s key competitive advantages is a highly productive, industry-leading team of individuals that runs our world-class discovery engine and development organization. We believe that discovery is not a commodity, and we have invested in building exceptional small molecule, medicinal chemistry and antibody capabilities to optimize the combinability of molecules within our portfolio.

Accelerated Development

The development of our combination therapies in disease areas of high unmet need are guided by specific biologic mechanisms of cancer. Our deep understanding of disease biology enables us to quickly move from Phase 1 through commercialization.

Since its inception, Arcus has advanced its molecules from program initiation to investigational new drug (IND) filing in as short as 18 months, and accelerated platform and signal-seeking studies to move from proof–of-concept Phase 1 to randomized Phase 2 and registrational Phase 3 studies in just a few years.

Unity with the Cancer Community

We understand the urgent need of patients who are waiting for new treatment options. Collaboration is a core value at Arcus. Through thoughtful partnerships, Arcus has been able to facilitate participation in our clinical trials, with the goal of bringing new medicines to patients faster. It is through combining expertise with industry partners, patients and physicians that we aim to achieve our vision of Combining to Cure®.
