Chief Operating Officer
BioLoomics is an exciting biotech company combining synthetic biology in human cells, cellular imaging, and machine learning to build safer tumor-specific biologics for oncology. Using our ‘Evolution in a Microscope’ platform, we perform directed evolution of biologics in human cell libraries. This platform includes cutting edge, computer vision guided cell picking, our mammalian display 2.0 technology, and best-in-class fluorescent bioassays to build and search libraries of antibody chimera designs for rare variants with therapeutic potential. Our unique approach enables us to build antibodies that execute complex logic to focus therapeutic activity specifically in and around tumors. Our mission is to bring life-saving oncology drugs to patients that eradicate tumors using the power of the immune system.
