How do you understand what to 'drug' in the first place?
Most drug programs focus on binding molecules to a purified “target” protein, hoping that binding will drive a desired downstream function. Octant engineers biology and chemistry at massive scales to modulate the function itself, targeting complex cellular mechanisms that drive disease.
We build custom sensors in human cells to disentangle and model the cellular mechanisms driving disease.
Engineering small molecules to modulate biological mechanisms requires high-throughput explorations of local chemical diversity.
Barcoded multiplexing enables massively parallel high-throughput drug discovery. Barcoded sensors quantify subtle effect sizes across thousands of experiments, critical for powering direct-to-biology chemistry and large AI/ML datasets.
The Octant platform is enabled, processed, and accelerated by our advanced AI/ML pipelines and tools. Our proprietary chemical biology datasets generate unique insights from millions of data points to advance drug programs.
We are a group of technologists and builders charting new approaches to drug discovery. We combine new technologies to find simple and elegant solutions to complex problems. Scientists, engineers and operators - we are all working together to build a new type of company.About Us
