Our mission is to improve

the lives of the millions that

suffer from food allergies

and gluten-related disorders

 

Food allergies and gluten-related disorders are on the rise,

with significant social, health, and economic impact

$25B

each year is spent on healthcare costs related to food allergies and disorders

1 in every 13 children in

the United States is affected by food allergies

new cases of celiac

disease have doubled every fifteen years

 We are using cutting

edge technologies in immunology, computational biology, and protein engineering to develop a new approach 

We are building a comprehensive, clinically validated map of the molecular structure of food allergies and disorders, unlocking critical knowledge about the biological mechanisms that drive human food interactions. We are applying this knowledge to develop foods that are safe and healthy for everyone to eat, starting with two of the most common triggers, peanuts and wheat.
