Company Summary:

Inzen Therapeutics is a privately held, early-stage biotechnology company exploring Thanocrine SignalingTM as a surprising and important driver of disease.  While communication between living cells is a well-established concept, Inzen has identified Thanocrine SignalingTM as a form of communication between dying and living cells.
