New Scancell chief sets out his vision to commercialise groundbreaking cancer treatments

Cliff Holloway, chief executive of Scancell Holdings Plc (LON:SCLP), spoke to Proactive soon after taking over as CEO at the immuno-oncology company.

Holloway says generating clinical data's a big focus for them in the near-term.

''Over the next two years we expect to see clinical readouts from two of our programmes - SCIB1 and Modi-1''.

''We'll be extending our pipeline particularly around Moditope with the Modi-3 programme, if we're successful with the grand challenge''.

''Then it's around looking at technical partnerships that will allow us to de-risk our developments''.
