Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and Oxford, United Kindgom--(Newsfile Corp. - April 12, 2024) - Adaptimmune Therapeutics plc (NASDAQ: ADAP), a company redefining the treatment of solid tumor cancers with cell therapy, today announced that its strategic collaboration with Genentech entered in 2021, has been terminated.

Adrian Rawcliffe, Adaptimmune's Chief Executive Officer: "We've had a very valuable collaboration with our partner Genentech, and we continue to believe in the long-term potential of our iPSC-based allogeneic platform.
