CSO-COO Rare Disease Platform

We have developed biological insights that suggest how specific enzyme loss leads to disease and potential strategies for replacing its activity. These discoveries also uncovered pathways where the enzyme intersects with cancer and other neurodegenerative diseases. We will leverage this knowledge to develop therapies for common and rare diseases. 

Senior Vice President

We aim to translate the genetics of the immune system to create clinical products to improve the way in which diseases are both diagnosed and treated. We have a robust clinical pipeline that leverages our partnership with Microsoft to use machine learning to accelerate our ability to connect receptors and antigens to enable our vision for the early and accurate detection of many diseases at the same time.
