Sagres Discovery Company Profile

16:39 EDT 25th September 2017 | BioPortfolio

Sagres Discovery is building a market position in oncology by applying innovative technologies to establish strong proprietary programs in oncogene discovery, molecular profiling, drug target validation, and therapeutic development.

According to the National Institutes of Health, annual costs related to cancer in the U.S. totaled $156.7 billion in 2001. Worldwide cancer mortality is estimated to be 6.2 million per year by the World Health Organization. Now that the biotechnology industry has entered the postgenomic era, attention has shifted to genes, proteins, and the biological pathways they control as the critical path to effective cancer prevention, diagnosis and treatment.



Pharmaceutical and biopharmaceutical companies are seeking a significant number of validated drug targets and leads from which they can develop new cancer drugs. As a consequence, there is a tremendous opportunity for early-stage biotechnology companies to identify cancer genes and convert them into drug targets and profiling arrays that will translate into novel therapeutics. Sagres Discovery is poised at the forefront of this effort.



Sagres Discovery is a new biotechnology startup located in Davis, California. The founders recognized a business opportunity for an independent company that could combine state-of-the-art genomic tools with robust in-vivo gene discovery tools to overcome the biological validation bottleneck inherent in most genomics-based disease gene discovery programs. The company's technology platform enables discovery and clinical validation of human cancer genes at unprecedented speed.
