<div>If you are excited about our mission to cure neurodegenerative diseases, please get in touch and let us know what types of roles you would be most interested in - we will be opening several important roles in the upcoming year.</div><div> <br> <div>We will then connect with you once we have a suitable fit!</div> <div> <br> <div> <span style="font-size:24px;">Who We Are</span> </div> <div> <br> <div> <span style="font-size:11pt;">Technology has transformed almost every single aspect of our lives. Yet, it still takes 12 years to develop a drug. Today thousands of diseases affecting hundreds of millions of people have no effective treatment. Accelerating the pace of bringing effective, new medicines to patients is one of the greatest opportunities for humanity.</span> </div> <div> <br> <div> <span style="font-size:11pt;">Our mission is to develop better drugs, faster using technology. We have built an end-to-end technology-driven drug discovery platform centered around one of the field’s largest human genomics databases in neuroscience. We use machine learning to map the complex causes of disease and turn those insights into promising drug candidates on our internal biology and chemistry platforms. We are developing drugs to treat some of the biggest medical challenges today: ALS, Parkinson’s Disease, and Alzheimer’s Disease. Our first drug is entering the clinic at the end of this year as a new treatment for ALS and was discovered entirely from our platform.</span> </div> <div> <br> <div> <span style="font-size:11pt;">We have raised $134M from top tier investors (e.g. BlackRock, Eli Lilly, Merck, Section 32, Threshold Ventures, Y Combinator, etc). Last year, we announced a $706M deal with Eli Lilly. We are a team of engineers, neuroscientists, and drug developers united around an audacious vision: to build the next Genentech of the digital age.</span> </div> <div> <br> <div> <br> <div> <span style="font-size:11pt;">Let’s transform patient lives, together..</span> </div> <div> <br> <div> <br> <div> <br> <div> <br> </div> </div> </div> </div> </div> </div> </div> </div> </div> </div> </div>
