Over 1.5 billion people suffer from diseases in which the available medicines don't work, are too expensive or have harmful side effects. These include chronic pain, PTSD, Alzheimer's disease and many rare diseases, like childhood epilepsy. Many of these patients are forced to depend on crude, and unreliable products from medical marijuana. We use a yeast-based system to produce the active compounds of cannabis, providing specialized solutions for patients, researchers and pharma companies.
We are building a new supply chain for high quality and inexpensive medicine, by engineering yeast to produce natural products.
