We invested in Domina Therapeutics!
Domina’s systematic approach holds great promise as it aims to address complex, polygenic, multifactorial diseases - which actually is how most diseases should be characterized - they are not the result of a single gene or protein or cell type defect; indeed over-focused targeting has been one of the reasons for the failure of so many therapies against prevalent diseases. Instead, Domina aims to develop therapeutics that modulate and restore neuronal communication that directly impacts cognitive function, something that current approaches usually fall short of doing. That being said, recent acquisitions and partnerships between established pharma/biotech and startups focusing on neuropsychiatric/neurodegenerative disorders have garnered multi millions of dollars with the potential for billions of dollars in subsequent milestone payments, and we anticipate Domina should match these achievements in the coming years.
