Oriented at the cutting edge of AI, RNA and structural biology
We want to unleash the power of artificial intelligence on molecular structure to engineer RNA biology, creating medicines that can tackle diseases that were previously untreatable.
Our Team

Executed by an interdisciplinary, world-class team with deep experience in RNA and structural biology, artificial intelligence, machine learning, genomics, engineering, and physics, we are THE RNA structure company.
