About Vedanta Biosciences, Inc.
Vedanta is pioneering the development of a new class of therapies
based on defined bacterial consortia that act by modulating the
human microbiome. Modulation of the human microbiota holds enormous
promise to treat a broad range of immune and infectious diseases in
ways that are completely different to existing drug classes.
Breakthrough discoveries of our scientific team in the field of
mucosal immunology have led to the first rationally designed drug
candidates in the microbiome field.
We believe that in the near future, doctors will have an entirely
new option to treat patients: bacterial consortia therapeutics. We
are enabling this new drug class with groundbreaking and
industry-leading scientific work powered by large-scale
capabilities to identify, screen, and manufacture bacteria with
drug-like properties. Our team is at the core of all we do - and
we're excited to meet new team members!
