Our Team

ARC is a team of scientists across academia and industry who work collaboratively to challenge pathogens. Our goal is to develop innovative, adaptable, and tunable therapeutics to combat drug-resistant and evolving pathogens.

In order to counter drug-resistant pathogens, not only do we need new and effective therapeutics, but those capable of evolving as pathogens evolve. To this end, we use engineering and science to create effective, smart therapies that can be delivered with great speed and precision.
