A2A Pharmaceuticals designs computationally optimized small molecule therapeutics for the treatment of cancer and antibiotic resistant bacterial infections. Our two oncology programs are focused on inhibiting essential protein-protein interactions in leukemia and in diverse solid tumors. These interactions are critical for cancer progression, but non-essential in normal cells. The antibiotic programs target biosynthetic enzymes in gram-negative bacteria, in pathways not found in humans. The targets selected have no clinically used therapeutics, minimizing susceptibility to resistance; and unlike the numerous follow-on antibiotics currently in development.
