Sapience Therapeutics

  • Barry Kappel, Sapience Therapeutics

Sapience Therapeutics is a privately held company focused on discovering and developing peptide-based therapeutics to previously ‘undruggable’ targets for major unmet medical needs, particularly high mortality cancers. Sapience identifies promising targets through a deep understanding of the transcriptional regulation of oncogenic or immune-modulatory proteins. Our targets may be non-traditional in drug discovery as they do not demonstrate enzymatic activities or act as ligand-binding receptors. Sapience has multiple approaches to generate initial hits, which are then optimized to therapeutic candidates based on decades of experience working with peptide and protein therapeutics. Sapience is looking to raise a series B financing in the first half of 2019.
