Luke Gruenert

Co-Founder & CEO

Luke discovered his interest in biology when he began working in the lab of Dr. Dieter Gruenert at UCSF in 2013 on a variety of gene therapy projects. Recognizing the need for a new, transformative approach to treating cancer, it was here Luke developed the technology that is the basis for Onconetics’ pioneering approach.

Luke’s passion lies not only in improving healthcare, but emphasizing the importance of an improved and dignified quality of life for individuals in need. Luke brings several years of dedicated biomedical research experience, as well as rigorous training in the field by highly qualified professionals—and an unyielding dedication to transforming the healthcare industry and bettering the lives of patients.

Luke founded Onconetics in honor of his father and his profound impact on Luke and the field of gene therapy.
