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.

On the basis of this map, we design proteins that do not trigger an immune response. These proteins are then applied to the food and therapeutics markets.
