The Atara Story

We launched Atara Biotherapeutics in August 2012 to help patients with serious diseases and few therapeutic options to combat cancer and other serious illnesses. Our research is based on technology that enables the ability to harness and augment the immune system to stem disease. Our goal is to help patients, such as Atara Ciechanover, our company’s namesake, who suffered from cancer before passing away in 2012. We aim to empower patients to fight their illnesses with innovative treatment options.
