Macrophage cells

We're building a platform focused on myeloid cells.

 

Why myeloid cells?

  • Most immune cells receive orders from myeloid cells. 

  • Fibrosis is heavily tied to how myeloid cells respond to damage and repair signals. 

  • Myeloid cells represent a class of cell that has been over-looked in a variety of diseases.

How are we doing it?

We're using datasets from autoimmune and healthy populations, and with the help of our bioinformatician team, we're scavenging for novel targets that are specific to myeloid cells. 

We have the ability to validate targets in-house by iRNA or knockout using myeloid cells.
