Innovation with integrity

We aim to inspire our clients, consumers and employees alike with our uncompromising science.


Let us begin

We have initiated research projects to engineer cells to be better at what they do:  producing biological molecules.

We are developing biological systems to facilitate better delivery of therapeutic molecules, including proteins, enzymes, and nucleic acids, directly to cells. We are pursuing therapeutic programs that have to potential to significantly improve human health. We are actively working with and seeking collaborators with innovative technology that can accelerate our progress.

We believe we can accomplish these goals by doing Good Science that adheres to ethical principles.
