Applied Therapeutics

Year Formed: 2016

Focus Area: High unmet need therapeutic targets

Bio: Applied Therapeutics specifically targets areas of high unmet need - fatal or debilitating diseases, for which no treatments are available. We believe that through innovative science, millions of lives can be saved. Many validated targets (with proven roles in disease) have failed to produce meaningful therapies. New technologies offer new opportunities for effective drug development against these targets. Applied Therapeutics applies cutting-edge technology to validated drug targets in areas of high unmet medical need.
