Current Companies
Aridis Pharmaceuticals, LLC
Aridis Pharmaceuticals is a biopharmaceutical company developing drugs to treat infectious disease.  The Company has optimized a number of product candidates by leveraging its proprietary formulation and delivery technologies.  These products have significant market potential and address unmet medical needs in the growing population of patients with serious lung diseases like pneumonia, cystic fibrosis, bronchiectasis and COPD.  With a management team responsible for several of the top drugs at Genentech and MedImmune, Aridis has advanced its pipeline through significant preclinical milestones using non-dilutive funding totaling over $8 million.

BioMarker Pharmaceuticals, Inc.
BioMarker is translating the discovery of genes that control aging into innovative therapeutics and diagnostics that can treat or prevent chronic diseases associated with aging. Therapeutic interventions based on these genes will result in a longer and healthier human lifespan. When experimental animals are fed diets that are severely restricted in total calories they exhibit a potent protection against age-related diseases like cancer, heart disease, metabolic disorders like diabetes, and neurodegenerative diseases like Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s disease. In addition, their maximum lifespan is extended by about 30%. This approach, called calorie restriction (CR), is far too difficult to be readily adopted by people. BioMarker is identifying “CR mimetics”, which will have the same properties as CR itself. BioMarker has developed a proprietary screening approach to identify CR mimetics. We intend to deliver safe and efficacious therapeutics and wellness products to enable people to live much longer, productive and healthier lives.

Chronix Biomedical, Inc.

Obura Company
Obura Company is a preclinical stage company focusing on amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS). Also known as Lou Gehrig's disease, ALS is a severe and debilitating disease that affects 30,000 Americans and many more people overseas. People with ALS lose their abilities to walk, to use their hands, and to eat and speak, and eventually become dependent on respirators. With average survival from diagnosis at 3 - 5 years and no truly effective treatments currently available, new therapeutic options are urgently needed. We are currently testing our lead compound, DM201, for use in ALS, and we are also investigating mechanisms of pathogenesis of this disease.

Single Cell Technology, Inc.
Central to contemporary pharmaceutical and diagnostic development is the unrelenting pursuit of tight binding molecules, �binders� for short. Once a molecular target is identified, the search is on to find binders that attach quickly, stay on for the desired period of time, bind to the exact site and that site alone, and elicit the desired diagnostic or biological response.
Single Cell Technology (SCT) has developed and patented a proprietary and unique platform to identify and characterize antibody-based binders. With innovative integration of cutting edge technologies, we deliver in a single run thousands of binders that are carefully ranked based on kinetic properties and site binding characteristics. In addition, we obtain valuable insight into the molecular target�s structure that was previously unavailable. Based on the outcome of the initial run, we can launch additional runs to optimize a number of select candidates in parallel. In short, the SCT versatile platform delivers the best of the current hybridoma and phage display technologies without their inherent limitations. In addition to seeking binders for pharmaceutical purposes, our platform can easily extend to other areas such as diagnostics and research where the burden of regulatory approval is much less.
