Parthenon Therapeutics is a biotechnology company deploying our knowledge of complex biology and advanced technologies to deliver therapies with curative potential to patients faster.

Executing on our mission requires an interdisciplinary approach and collaboration.

Cancer Is Still Beating Us — A New Approach Is Needed.

Far too many cancers remain incurable and highly aggressive
with an Overall Survival <50% at 5 years.

Despite enormous leaps in biomedical research far too many cancers remain incurable (Overall Survival < 50% @ 5 years).  There is an unmet need for transformative treatment advances.

This requires understanding cancer as a complex disease and matching treatment to patient tumor biology.

Understanding the cellular ecosystem of diseases and the complex interactions of these varied cell types is critical in creating effective treatments.

A New Approach

We have assembled a truly cross-disciplinary team of world-class disease experts, clinicians, experienced drug hunters, mathematicians and engineers.

Our Drug Discovery Engine operates at the intersection of complex disease biology and explainable AI to deliver precision therapeutics matched to the right patient population.  Our Platform increases translational success of novel targets and co-targets to achieve new levels of efficiency in drug discovery cycle times.

Unlike conventional approaches we have the capacity to screen and address multiple targets simultaneously contextualized by patient molecular profiles. 

The result − a Pipeline of precision therapeutics with curative potential for patients.

Our Pipeline

Our pipeline addresses complex diseases and novel targets coupled to the “right” patient populations.
