LifeMine Therapeutics is pioneering a genomically-enabled drug discovery approach integrating advanced life science and computational technologies to elucidate human biology and create sophisticated therapeutics that attack the fundamental drivers of serious human diseases.
LifeMine will access new drug modalities by conducting the first industrial-scale operation exploiting small molecule evolution in fungi to discover game-changing therapeutics. The initial focus will be on immune modulators, metabolic effectors, and cell differentiators. This platform is expected to provide multiple first- and best-in-class therapeutics in succession, and to continue delivering these for years to come.
