LEADING THE DISCOVERY of Allosteric Binding Sites to Create New Medicines
Gain Therapeutics is redefining drug discovery with its SEE-Tx™ target identification platform.
By identifying and optimizing allosteric binding sites that have never before been targeted, Gain is unlocking new treatment options for difficult-to-treat disorders characterized by protein misfolding, including lysosomal storage disorders.
Protein misfolding is an underlying biological issue of many diseases, including lysosomal storage disorders and some neurodegenerative diseases such as Parkinson’s disease. When a protein misfolds, its 3D structure is disrupted and it can no longer function properly. While some treatments are available for these types of disorders, they have significant limitations.
Gain was originally established in 2017 with the support of its founders and institutional investors such as TiVenture, 3B Future Health Fund (previously known as Helsinn Investment Fund) and VitaTech. It has been awarded funding support from The Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s Research (MJFF) and The Silverstein Foundation for Parkinson’s with GBA, as well as from the Eurostars-2 joint program with co-funding from the European Union Horizon 2020 research and Innosuisse. In July 2020, Gain Therapeutics, Inc. completed a share exchange with Gain Therapeutics SA, a Swiss corporation, whereby GT Gain Therapeutics SA became a wholly owned subsidiary of Gain Therapeutics, Inc.
