About Mirati Therapeutics

Mirati Therapeutics, Inc. is a clinical-stage oncology company developing product candidates to address the genetic and immunological promoters of cancer. Mirati's precision oncology clinical programs utilize next-generation genomic testing to identify and select cancer patients who Mirati believes would be most likely to benefit from targeted drug treatment. In immuno-oncology, Mirati is advancing clinical programs where its product candidates have the potential to improve the immune environment of tumor cells and may enhance and expand the efficacy of existing cancer immunotherapy medicines when given in combination. Mirati's pre-clinical programs include potentially first-in-class and best-in-class product candidates specifically designed to address mutations and tumors where few treatment options exist. Mirati approaches each of its discovery and development programs with a singular focus: to translate its deep understanding of the molecular drivers of cancer into better therapies and better outcomes for patients.
