Selecta's Series B Adds $15M to Advance Targeted Nanoparticles

Abstract:
Financings Roundup Founded in late 2007 to develop a technology platform that combines discoveries in immunobiology with advances in nanotechnology, Selecta Biosciences Inc. is ready to start moving its program toward the clinic thanks to a $15.1 million Series B round.

"We were gratified to find a very receptive audience at a very difficult time," said Robert Bratzler, executive chairman of the Watertown, Mass.-based firm. He called the Series B "our first substantial round," following $2.5 million in seed funding in May 2008 from Polaris Venture Partners and Flagship Ventures.

Both of those investors returned for the Series B, joined by NanoDimension, a VC firm that focuses on nanotechnologies, and individual investor Timothy A. Springer, a professor of pathology at Harvard Medical School and previous founder of LeukoSite Inc., which was acquired by Millennium Pharmaceuticals Inc. in 1999.
