SyntheX Labs

SyntheX uses synthetic lethality to create peptide therapeutics to treat incurable cancers. They have developed an evolutionary platform which can test 10 billion protein variants in one petri dish to evolve new therapeutics.

Ava Labs

Ava creates wines molecule by molecule to replicate the terroir of classic high end wines without grapes. The future of food is synthetic.

Knox Medical Diagnostics

Knox is bringing hospital level asthma management technology to families at home with the first tool that provides predictive insights to parents of asthmatics to prevent asthma attacks, enable proactive medication management, and give patients and parents peace of mind.

AstRoNA Biotechnologies

Food poisoning is a serious global concern today with over 1 in 6 people getting food poisoning every year. AstRoNA has engineered a simple to use handheld detector that can be deployed on-site at every phase of food production, from field to table, giving lab accurate results within one hour.


BioNascent is building better health outcomes for babies who aren’t breastfed by producing proteins found in human breast milk to develop an alternative to dairy based-infant formulas.

Amaryllis Nucleics
