Working to halt disease processes in the earliest stages

Initial Therapeutics, an ATP company, is discovering and developing a new class of small-molecule medicines designed to prevent pathogenic protein synthesis.

Initial’s approach is unique and starkly differentiated from protein degradation and other interventions that recognize and tackle proteins only after they have been fully formed.

Founded by world-renowned scientists, and currently operating in stealth mode with a substantial Series A commitment from ATP, Initial is pursuing high-confidence, heretofore difficult-to-drug targets in areas of serious unmet medical need.
