Providence Therapeutics is a private Canadian biotechnology company that specializes in messenger RNA (mRNA) vaccine therapies.
We hold deep expertise in the science of mRNA with operations located in Calgary, Alberta and Toronto, Ontario. The beginnings of Providence Therapeutics started with our undivided focus on oncology research and personalized cancer therapies. However, given the global COVID-19 crisis, we have pivoted from our original mission, devoting our energy, knowledge, and resources to creating a mRNA COVID-19 vaccine, which is currently under Phase 2 Human Clinical Trial.
As we face the current pandemic together, our personal mandate is to help supply a safe and effective COVID-19 vaccine solution to global citizens in largely underserved markets.
The Providence executive team is made up of dedicated experts who boast over 100 years of cumulative industry experience with extensive expertise in RNA therapeutics.
mRNA PLATFORM TECHNOLOGY
(Providence is looking beyond COVID)
Once we have the DNA genetic sequence of any virus or variant, we can “plug” the correct protein or part of the viral protein into the mRNA vaccine. We aim at applying our mRNA platform technology towards COVID and variants, and also to potential cancer targets, infectious diseases and other therapies.
WHY AN mRNA VACCINE?
mRNA is required for the cells in our bodies to carry out specific instructions for necessary protein creation to sustain all lifeforms. It helps to translate the genetic information carried in our DNA into proteins which carry out many essential functions in cells.
Effective mRNA vaccines can cause our cells to make foreign proteins, such as those from viruses or bacteria, and thus instruct the immune system to recognize and attack these microbial invaders.
Why a Cancer Vaccine?
Current immunotherapies work by increasing the strength of an immune response that already exists.
Unfortunately, some tumours remain hidden from the immune system making some current approaches ineffective. At Providence Therapeutics, we spotlight a tumour through a 100% personalized mRNA vaccine against the mutations driving the tumour.

News & Media
We are part of the mRNA Revolution.
Providence not only aims to be part of the critical global mRNA COVID vaccine supply pool, but we also look to apply our mRNA platform technology towards various vaccine developments by establishing key collaborations with industry players in the various fields of cancers, therapies and infectious diseases. We extend our invitation to Biotech Industry players, the scientific community, and Academia that wish to reach out to us to discuss viable potential projects that our mRNA platform could play a vital role in.
