Cambrian Biopharma, a multi-asset longevity biotech, is building the medicines that will redefine healthcare in the 21st century – therapeutics to lengthen health span, the period of life spent in good health.
By partnering with leading academic institutions and biotech entrepreneurs worldwide, we are advancing a diversified pipeline of novel therapeutics, each targeting a biological driver of aging. Our approach is to develop interventions that treat specific diseases first, then deploy them as preventative medicines to improve the overall quality of life as we age.
Cambrian is a Distributed Development Company (or DisCo) that combines the advantages of a venture capital firm and a big pharmaceutical company with the nimbleness of a biotech startup.
Cambrian's sourcing and development engine allow us to identify promising science, deploy capital and teams of drug development experts, and provide stewardship to advance new medicines. By leveraging established expertise and repeatable functional models, we achieve vast efficiencies in execution speed and resource utilization.
To date, we have 14 novel therapeutics in development and have closed a Series C financing round in October 2021, which raised $100 million. We plan to expand the number of programs. Further, we expect to initiate clinical trials for three programs in the next 18 months.
