Next-generation of therapeutics from gut microbes

What Investors Say

Invested $1,000 this round
Shu and Joe are two all-star co-founders with deep technical expertise and prior startup expertise. By combining first-in-class comparative genomics and directed evolution, they have developed a library of therapeutic candidates for COVID-19 that neutralize the spike protein on SARS-CoV-2 and inhibit infection. Additionally, the peptide inhibitor can be functionally modified to prime the host’s immune system for response, cleverly doubling as both a therapeutic and immune-boosting combination, providing treatment throughout the entire course of disease progression. The team has computationally identified high-affinity drug candidates, partnered with a manufacturer, and is ready to initiate in vitro candidate evaluation. Finally, their platform can be repurposed for future uses besides biotherapeutics such as the agriculture and industrial biochemical markets.
