Eigen Therapeutics emerges from stealth with $7M in funding to develop therapies that address cancer heterogeneity
...read more

No two cancers are the same. Let’s treat it that way.

At Eigen, we’re tackling tumor heterogeneity by utilizing our platform to design combination therapies.

Targeted therapies are incredibly effective

CAR T-cell therapies, antibody-drug conjugates, and other targeted therapies eliminate cells that express a specific target associated with cancer.

But only for some cancers

When target levels vary - which is the case for most cancers - cancer cells escape treatment, decreasing eligibility for patients to receive targeted therapies, and increasing risk of relapse in others.

We help targeted therapies hit their mark

Eigen develops co-therapies that mark cancer cells and unmark healthy cells by modulating the expression of their targets. With better control of target levels, we can reduce side effects and improve outcomes for more patients.

We’re building a platform to scale co-therapy development

Our discovery engine uses machine learning and automation to improve existing targeted therapies, develop combination therapies, and make them available for a wider range of cancers.

A multidisciplinary problem needs a multidisciplinary team

By combining our expertise in engineering, biology, robotics, and data science, we’re building a platform at Eigen that will enable a single scientist to accomplish feats that would normally take an entire team.
