To develop therapies that empower the immune system to cure neurodegeneration and cancer. 

The burden caused by neurodegeneration and cancer is unprecedented. There are currently few methods to prevent, cure, or meaningfully alter the inexorable course of these disorders.

Our mission is to change that.

To do so, we mine the human genome to identify mutations in immune system genes that increase the risk for these disorders. From there, we are pioneering new drugs that counteract the damage these mutations cause.

Our goal is a cure. Period.
