Warp Drive Bio

Warp Drive Bio operates on the core principle that nature is the most powerful inventor of new drugs, unconstrained by the mechanistic and synthetic limitations of traditional medicinal chemistry. Warp Drive Bio is deploying its proprietary SMART™ and Genomic Mining (Small Molecule Assisted Receptor Targeting) platforms to discover novel medicines.

"Warp Drive Bio is a very diverse environment. Each individual brings a unique perspective and skillset to the table."

-Katie, Research Associate

The company was launched in 2012 through a strategic partnership with Sanofi and with financing from Third Rock Ventures and Greylock Partners.
