About Surface Oncology®

We are a team on a mission to deliver transformative outcomes for people with cancer by breaking through the frontiers of immuno-oncology research. Our diverse clinical and preclinical pipeline of immune-enhancing antibody candidates target the innate and adaptive arms of the immune system to deliver dramatically different therapies for patients and their families.

What Break Through Means to Us

Surface Oncology is driven to deliver transformational outcomes for people with cancer who have no effective treatment options. We push ourselves to break through across all dimensions of our work by:

Setting a high bar for potential patient impact at every stage of development

Focusing on interrogating the most meaningful targets with proven technologies

Leveraging multiple platforms to make fast decisions to benefit our overall portfolio

Fostering an energetic and highly collaborative culture that emphasizes collective learning


Our leaders and advisors drive the bold pursuit of transformative cancer care.

Pushing Further with Partners

To break through the current boundaries of medical science, collaborations are a crucial part of our strategy. In January 2016, Surface entered into a strategic collaboration with Novartis to advance our next-generation cancer therapies.

Under the agreement, Novartis currently has an exclusive worldwide license to our fully human CD73 antibody, NZV930 (formerly SRF373).  Surface has received an upfront payment of $70 million from Novartis and is entitled to potential milestone payment upon the achievement of specified development and sales milestones of $525 million as well as tiered royalties.
