A-Alpha Bio

A-Alpha Bio is a seed-stage biotech startup commercializing cutting edge synthetic biology tools enabled by next generation sequencing for improved drug discovery and development. We spun out of the University of Washington’s Institute for Protein Design and Center for Synthetic Biology in 2018 after patenting and publishing our AlphaSeq platform for high-throughput protein interaction characterization. Since closing our seed financing in September 2019, we have focused on partnering with pharmaceutical companies to discover and optimize drugs for therapeutic areas ranging from infectious disease to cancer. We have been growing rapidly and new members of the team should expect a fast-paced and highly dynamic work environment. We are building a diverse, meritocratic, and supportive team that values hard work, creativity, transparency, individual and team growth, flexibility, and kindness.
