Our mission is to accelerate the discovery and development of therapeutics for patients in need inspired by naturally occurring compounds and traditional remedies, while preserving ethnobotanical knowledge and ecosystems.
We are scientists, entrepreneurs, researchers, biologists, patent specialists and executives. Together we work to create a healthier world inspired by the therapeutic potential of nature. At the heart of this is our passion for progress and an unbridled curiosity.
The plant, the fungal and the animal kingdoms have co-evolved over hundreds of millions of years yielding innumerable symbiotic relationships at the molecular and protein level waiting to be discovered and adapted for the development of human medicines. This strategy to develop medicines inspired by nature should significantly improve the odds of drug development to successfully bring novel medications to patients in need.
