SEATTLE, WA--(Marketwired - June 06, 2016) - Strategic News Service (SNS) has selected Kineta as a 2016 FiReStarter company to be featured at the 14th annual Future in Review (FiRe) conference. FiRe 2016 will take place September 27-30, 2016, at the Stein Eriksen Lodge Deer Valley in Park City, Utah.

Described by The Economist as "the best technology conference in the world," FiRe features global thought leaders in technology and the global economy, including Elon Musk, Craig Venter, Michael Dell, Vint Cerf, Leroy Hood, Elena Polyakova, Mark Hurd, Paul Jacobs, Cory Doctorow, Kamran Elahian, Ken Goldman, Dharmendra Modha, and many others. FiReStarters are selected based on the strength of their potential to bring positive change to the world, and are showcased at the FiRe conference, in panels throughout the event and with ongoing relationships introduced and supported by SNS.

Kineta is an emerging and sustainable biotech company that fills a void in the biopharmaceutical industry by efficiently advancing therapies from discovery to clinical proof of concept. Kineta actively collaborates with a broad array of private, government, and industry partners to advance its innovative research in autoimmune diseases, antivirals, and chronic pain. Kineta has established and is expanding on a diverse pipeline of novel life-improving therapies that address critical unmet patient needs.

"We are honored to be selected and to be participating in the FiRe conference this year. This is a great opportunity, and we look forward to contributing as a featured company," said Rob Hedequist, president and COO of Kineta.

"Kineta is providing a faster path to health for the burgeoning number of patients suffering from autoimmune diseases or in critical need of new vaccines. The company's new AViiD™ screening platform is a perfect example of the SNS accent on the new world of "augmented immunity," which we think will drive many new and successful treatments going forward. We are delighted to have Kineta as a FiReStarter company this year," said Mark Anderson, FiRe Chair and CEO of the Strategic News Service.
