Predicting the future is no easy task.

But when you work with some of the world’s brightest scientific minds to help them take their inventions to market, it’s hard not to get excited about their potential impact.

During the COVID-19 pandemic, the world marveled at the joint efforts of scientists and medical professionals as they developed life-saving vaccines and drugs that mitigated the effects of the virus.

And COVID-19 treatments are just one of many contemporary medical innovations set to improve our collective quality of life.

In fact, we believe that at least two of the companies we’re currently partnering with will produce the defining technologies of the 21st century.

Yes, that’s a big statement – one that can open you up to ridicule (see Newsweek’s 1995 article claiming the internet will die out).

One of those companies has the chance to introduce a completely novel way of treating disease. We’re confident they are on the path to success. And if we achieve what we’ve set out to do, its impact will be nothing short of revolutionary.

Another company we’re working with has a unique offering in the already niche field of gene silencing. And if their technology works the way we’re expecting it to, it will simply remove diseases that currently exist.

And the drugs our clients are developing won’t just address the symptoms, it will completely remove the disease.

You might think eliminating the world’s most common diseases is a utopian ideal. But it can, and will, be done. One great example is Gilead Sciences, whose antiviral drug has all but cured hepatitis C.

Excitingly, it is not a matter of if these innovations come to fruition, it is a matter of when. And all there will be left to do is ensure those responsible get the recognition their hard work deserves.
