Who We Are


Our mission is to develop life-changing gene therapies for patients with cancer and diabetes through unique, innovative science.

Genprex is a clinical-stage gene therapy company focused on developing life-changing therapies for patients with cancer and diabetes. Genprex’s technologies are designed to administer disease-fighting genes to provide new therapies for large patient populations with cancer and diabetes who currently have limited treatment options. Genprex works with world-class institutions and collaborators to develop drug candidates to further its pipeline of gene therapies in order to provide novel treatment approaches for patients with cancer and diabetes.

The company’s lead product candidate, REQORSA™ immunogene therapy (quaratusugene ozeplasmid), is being developed for non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). The active ingredient in REQORSA is the TUSC2 gene, a tumor suppressor gene. REQORSA uses the company’s unique, proprietary ONCOPREX® nanoparticle delivery system which delivers cancer-fighting genes by encapsulating them into nanoscale hollow spheres called nanoparticles, which are then administered intravenously and taken up by tumor cells where they express proteins that are missing or found in low quantities. In January 2020, the FDA granted Fast Track Designation for REQORSA in combination with AstraZeneca’s Tagrisso for the treatment of NSCLCGPX-002, a gene therapy for diabetes, is the most recent addition of our licensed technologies.
