Rewriting the Autoimmune Treatment Playbook

Why it Matters

Our goal is to eliminate suffering and fundamentally change the outcomes for patients living with  autoimmune diseases.

The broad impact of autoimmune disease in the U.S. requires a new approach and better options. We aim to do this by leveraging our precision analytics platform, powered by Foresite Labs, which comprises high-quality curated genetic, clinical and health records data. We then combine that information with the unmatched knowledge and expertise of our team, in order to inform which targets, pathways, indications, and patient subsets we pursue.

Our Approach


We aim to get the right medicine to each patient. Our leaders are experienced drug developers who are boldly committed to creating new knowledge and then following the science to take on the challenge of precision immunology.

We believe that our unique analytics platform with high-quality curated genetic, clinical and health records data will inform us on smarter targets, pathways, indications, and patient subsets to pursue.


Our Pipeline

We are building a pipeline of therapeutics based on genetically validated targets for application in the treatment of multiple autoimmune disease indications.


Our pipeline is led by ESK-001, a potentially best-in-class TYK2 inhibitor currently in clinical development for psoriasis with multiple other indications soon to follow. TYK2 is a gene that encodes a member of the tyrosine kinase and, more specifically, the well-known Janus kinases (JAKs) protein families. It is a central node in the signaling pathways of cytokines known as key mediators of inflammation and autoimmune diseases. This highly validated target has the potential to effectively treat multiple autoimmune indications beyond psoriasis.

Beyond TYK2, we have several discovery assets comprised of rigorously validated targets for the potential treatment of autoimmune indications.


Authenticity is Our Core

Join Us

We are scientists, drug hunters and company builders – we’ve done this before – and we know that success comes from hard work, grit and staying true to our founding vision. We can’t create real, meaningful therapies for patients without being real with ourselves.

We invite you to join us on this epic journey. Find out how.
