Our Team

We are a mission-aligned team with expertise across human biology, immunology, chemistry, computational biology, data science, machine learning, drug development, clinical, and commercial leadership.

Our Purpose

We are drawn together by our shared purpose and relentless hunger to improve health outcomes for as many people as possible while reducing the growing chronic disease burden. Our approach to innovation is uniquely human-centered — unlocking connections between Anthromolecule™ chemistry and biological pathways driving disease to create solutions preferred by patients and clinicians that are designed to transform the treatment of disease.

We have brought together an inclusive, interdependently ambitious, and high-performing team with the courage to learn, iterate and make leaps together. We approach our work with humility, acknowledging and embracing the complexity of the disciplines we need to bring together and the many unknowns in human biology.
