TC BioPharm is a biotechnology company developing cell therapies for treating cancer and severe viral infections that is headquartered in Glasgow, Scotland and was founded in 2013 by Angela Scott, Artin Moussavi, David Gallagher, and Michael Leek.
In addition to treating cancer the company looks to treat a range of disorders that are brought on by viral infections. They have developed the product ImmuniCell, which is being tested in clinical studies to fight against renal cell carcinoma, non-small cell lung cancer and melanoma patients.
In the long run the company is interested in developing and commercializing their cell-based products and solutions in order to treat diseases across a broad range of patients. They have developed allogenic CAR-T cell therapy products for the purpose of treating cancer, and are developing gamma delta T-cell therapies to fight against infectious diseases.
Gamma Delta T-cells (DGT cells) are a component of white blood cells and are responsible for innate immune system responses. They monitor the body's signs of biological stress and are among the first response options the body has. TC BioPharm looks to utilize the traits of a DGT cell to provide therapeutics that treat diseases and specifically cancer.

- BiotechnologyBiotechnology in a broad sense includes the use of living systems and organisms, as well as their parts for the development or production of products.
- Stem cell technologyTechnology used for isolating, generating, growing and controlling the differentiation of stem cells into specialized cells and the application of stem cell technology for medical and non-medical purposes such as producing meat through cellular agriculture.
- BiotechnologyBiotechnology can refer to the application of science and technology to living organisms or the use of living organisms, their parts, products or models thereof to solve a problem, produce knowledge or produce goods and services. Biotechnology may involve the alteration of living or non-living materials.
- Stem cellStem cells are self-renewing cells that have the potential to become multiple different cell types in the body. Stem cells are found in developing embryos. Adult stem cells maintain and repair tissues throughout life. Induced pluripotent stem cells are a type of stem cell derived from adult cells that are reprogrammed in the lab.
- Cell therapyCell therapy, also known as cellular therapy and cytotherapy, involves cellular material being grafted, implanted, or injected into patients for therapeutic purposes.
