REDESIGNING EVOLUTION’S PRODUCTS TO TREAT SERIOUS DISEASES
The mission of REVOLUTION Medicines is redesigning evolution’s products to treat serious diseases. The company discovers and develops new drugs by reconfiguring substances that are inherently rich with biological function as a result of natural selection. REVOLUTION Medicines’ innovative product engine is based on the REVEAL™ platform, which uses evolution’s lessons to inform selection of chemical scaffolds, and the REVBLOCKS™ technology, an integrated suite of rapid, agile, and modular synthesis methodologies for using simple chemical “building blocks” to create refined natural product-like structures with optimized pharmacologic and pharmaceutical properties.
