About Eikon Therapeutics

Eikon Therapeutics is a new biopharmaceutical company employing revolutionary technology at the interface of chemistry, engineering and biology to discover novel treatments for life-threatening diseases. Eikon’s discovery platform is built on groundbreaking innovations from its founders (Nobel Prize, 2014), culminating in the creation of microscopes which enable real time, molecular-resolution measurements of protein movement in living cells. By directly measuring the effects of chemical compounds on the behavior of a wide array of individual proteins in a live cellular environment, Eikon’s landmark assays facilitate the highly sensitive identification of compounds-protein interactions that could not be identified through traditional assays, thereby unlocking otherwise intractable classes of proteins as drug targets.
