As a platinum sponsor of LabCentral, Bristol-Myers Squibb can select up to two innovative life-sciences and biotech startup companies per year of active sponsorship for “Golden Tickets,” which underwrite the cost of one lab bench for one year in LabCentral’s Kendall Square facility.
“It’s been impressive to watch Leila Pirhaji and her ReviveMed team make progress toward their scientific and business milestones since arriving at LabCentral; they have immersed themselves fully in both the tangible and intangible resources our shared ecosystem offers,” commented LabCentral Cofounder and President Johannes Fruehauf, M.D., Ph.D. “We’re thrilled that Bristol-Myers Squibb has provided additional runway through the Golden Ticket, freeing up resources for ReviveMed to apply elsewhere. Strand Therapeutics are working on promising new technology for therapeutics and we look forward to welcoming them to the LabCentral community.”ReviveMed is pioneering an Artificial Intelligence (AI)-driven drug discovery platform by leveraging metabolomics. ReviveMed is working to overcome the difficulties of identifying a large set of metabolites for each patient, based on technology developed at MIT and published in Nature Methods. It further translates metabolomic data into novel therapeutic insights for drug and drug response biomarker discovery. Currently, ReviveMed is collaborating with pharmaceutical companies and pursuing internal drug discovery programs, initially focused on metabolic diseases.The goal of Strand Therapeutics’ mRNA programming technology is to make mRNA therapies safer and more effective by programming the location, timing, and intensity of therapeutic protein expression inside a patient’s body using mRNA-encoded logic circuits. These circuits can implement cell-type specific expression by sensing and classifying the unique miRNA expression signatures of cells, as well as controlling the dosage of protein expression by responding to exogenously administered small molecules. The technology was developed at Massachusetts Institute of Technology, and published in Nature Biotechnology and Nature Chemical Biology.
