Dart Neuroscience LLC Company Profile

04:44 EDT 19th March 2018 | BioPortfolio

Dart NeuroScience LLC (DNS) is a Delaware company formed in 2007. On January 1 2012, Helicon Therapeutics, Inc. merged with DNS. DNS is discovering new technologies and developing new therapies to help maintain cognitive vitality throughout life. The company will continue to grow to more than 250 employees and will move to its new facility (above) at Scripps Ranch in mid-2013.

DNS's mission is to become the leading specialized pharmaceutical company for memory disorders by focusing on the discovery and development of innovative drugs with new mechanisms of action. These discoveries are firmly based in a careful examination of the genes involved in the reorganization of synaptic connections in brain, a cellular/molecular process which underlies both implicit (motor skills) and explicit (facts and events) forms of memory.

DNS's unique perspective originated with scientific findings at the Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory (CSHL). CSHL developed an array of proprietary technologies that enable the identification of fruit fly genes that control memory. DNS has extended the functional links of these genes to memory in mammals and has grown its IP portfolio considerably with new methodologies to identify small molecular drugs from mammalian targets. DNS continues its focus on the identification and validation of genes involved in mammalian memory formation. With such gene targets, high-throughput screens are being carried out for compounds that enhance or inhibit the biochemical activity of the target gene - thereby yielding memory enhancers.
