The Company
Inzen Therapeutics is a privately held, early-stage biotechnology company exploring cellular turnover as a surprising and important driver of disease. Turnover is a fundamental feature of every cell in the human body, occurring more than 30 billion times per hour. However, this process often goes awry in disease. Our mission is to pioneer a novel category of drugs based on manipulating cellular turnover for the treatment of cancer, immune and fibrotic diseases, and regenerative processes.
 
Inzen Therapeutics was founded by Flagship Pioneering, an institute dedicated to the origination and development of first-in-category life sciences companies. Since 2000, Flagship has originated and fostered the development of nearly 100 scientific ventures resulting in $20+ billion in aggregate value, 500+ issued patents, and more than 50 clinical trials for novel therapeutic agents.
