We empower health by discovering new precision medicines for
translational dysfunction disorders.
Our mission is to leverage a new understanding of how genes are regulated to help patients suffering from hard-to-treat diseases like cancer, autoimmunity & neurological disorders.
What is translational dysfunction?
At Epitoire we're tackling a
New Frontier in Human Disease
Epitoire is exploiting a new understanding of how modifications to RNA and translational machinery proteins control gene expression and cell fate in disease. The regulatory axis of translation offers an opportunity to develop novel small molecule modulators of well-established, historically undruggable targets across serious human diseases, including genetically driven cancers and rare neurological diseases.
Modifications to all major biomolecules (DNA, RNA and protein) influence how genes are expressed. In certain diseases, these modifications are misregulated and lead to the expression of genes that typically remain unactivated in healthy cells.
Founded by a dedicated team of drug hunters.
Epitoire was founded at MIT in 2018 by an interdisciplinary team of scientists with experience developing small-molecule modulators of RNA-modifying enzymes. Today, Epitoire is building on ground-breaking research into the systems biology of RNA modifications and translational control to design new precision medicines for cancer, continuing a long heritage of transformational drug discovery.
