We help scientists solve disease and extend healthspan by building tools that simplify R&D, simulate biology, and untangle the complexity of life.
We exist to improve healthspan. We see a future where everyone can lead a healthy life enabled by routine health monitoring, precise simulation, and personalized therapy.
To improve healthspan, we must reduce the time, effort, and resources needed to develop drugs. We envision tools that enable scientists to generate compounds quickly, predict their efficacy reliably, and manufacture them inexpensively.
Our goal is to understand the physiochemical systems responsible for biology. We aim
to build holistic models, from individual atoms to whole organisms, that use physics and AI
to accurately predict biological behavior.
Our strategy is to equip scientists with powerful tools. We see researchers seamlessly combining robotic labs, insightful AI, and precise simulations. Scientists will be able to focus on science, without the challenges of engineering, infrastructure, and operations.
Unraveling biology is a massive challenge. We aim to bring scientists, engineers, and
entrepreneurs together to explore the unknown and push the boundaries of life.
We believe that health is a right. In the future, scientists should be able to conduct
experiments cheaply and easily in silico. The benefits of the knowledge they create
should be accessible to all.
The passionate scientists, engineers, and entrepreneurs driving the future of biology.
