Lactation Biologics: Increasing Milk Production for Healthier Babies
Lactation Biologics is developing a long-lasting, self-injectable treatment to help nursing mothers feed their babies naturally, helping them get the best nutrition possible in the face of climate disasters and supply chain disruptions.
SomaCode: Getting Cell Therapies Where They Need to Go
SomaCode is solving the problem of cell therapy delivery by identifying unique molecular “zip codes” for disease and engineering cells to home to those zip codes, making cell therapies safer and more effective.
Cellular “Backpacks” to Fight Cancer, Autoimmune Disorders, and More
Macrophages are very malleable immune cells, but that also means that they can be influenced by cancerous tumors and inflammatory processes. Our cellular "backpacks" stick to macrophages and can deliver molecules that keep them in their desired state for cell therapy and more.
