MyoKardia is pioneering a precision medicine approach to discover, develop, and commercialize targeted therapies for the treatment of serious cardiovascular diseases. MyoKardia’s scientists have discovered a portfolio of small molecule therapeutics aimed at the muscle proteins of the heart and intended to correct the excessive contraction, impaired relaxation, or insufficient contraction underlying diseases of systolic and diastolic dysfunction.
Navire, an affiliate of BridgeBio Pharma, is harnessing advances in the understanding of the role of SHP2 (Src homology region 2-containing protein tyrosine phosphatase) in cancer signaling to develop novel therapies for rare and difficult-to-treat cancers. The company develops small molecules inhibitors to SHP2, a phosphatase that mediates signaling of multiple pathways harnessed by tumors, thereby decreasing tumor growth while also enhancing patients’ immune response.
QED, an affiliate of BridgeBio Pharma, focuses on precision medicine for FGFR-driven cancers and diseases. QED, derived from the Latin “Quod Erat Demonstrandum” means “Thus, It Has Been Proven.” The company is focused on the development of infigratinib, a selective FGFR1-3 inhibitor.

Lyra Therapeutics, Inc. is a clinical-stage therapeutics company leveraging its proprietary XTreo™ platform to enable precise, sustained, local delivery of medications to diseased tissues not accessible with conventional therapeutic approaches. Lyra’s XTreo™ platform is comprised of a biocompatible mesh scaffold, an engineered elastomeric matrix and a versatile polymer-drug complex. The company’s current pipeline of therapeutics target tissues deep in the ear, nose and throat passages and are designed to deliver continuous drug therapy for months following a single non-invasive, in-office administration. Lyra’s lead product candidate, LYR-210, is in late-stage clinical development for the treatment of chronic rhinosinusitis and is designed to deliver up to six months of continuous anti-inflammatory drug therapy to the sinonasal passages.
Landos Biopharma is a clinical-stage biopharmaceutical company utilizing its LANCE A.I. platform to discover and develop novel oral therapeutics for patients with autoimmune diseases. LANCE has discovered new mechanisms of action, including the LANCL2, NLRX1 and PLXDC2 immunometabolic pathways. Landos Biopharma has 17 active development programs targeting these novel pathways at the interface of immunity and metabolism. Lead asset omilancor is a novel gut-restricted small molecule drug candidate for the treatment of ulcerative colitis, Crohn’s disease and Eosinophilic Esophagitis that targets the LANCL2 pathway. NX-13 is a novel, gut-restricted small molecule drug candidate for the treatment of inflammatory bowel disease, that targets the NLRX1 pathway. Additional candidates are in development for the treatment of lupus nephritis, rheumatoid arthritis, multiple sclerosis, and diabetes.
