We are a team of research scientists, engineers, clinical scientists, and data scientists with deep expertise and accomplishments, working together to combine science and advanced engineering to create innovative therapies that will improve and extend life. We are endlessly curious, intellectually honest and thrive in exploring biology in new ways.
We seek to advance breakthrough therapeutics through the purposeful integration of engineering and science.
Purposeful integration to create innovative therapies.
At Eikon, we discover and develop new medicines by reimagining what is possible — inventing new technologies to bring to light quantitative information about the behavior of biological systems — to identify new targets and bring novel therapies to patients.
Technology & Platform
We leverage what is available —
and invent what is not.
As experienced researchers and clinicians, we apply traditional, high-performance tools when we can. And our engineering skills allow us to build new instruments when we need them. With this approach we explore cell and molecular biology in completely new ways.

Our Proprietary Technology
There is a direct link between protein motion and activity. By measuring the dynamics of protein populations, we can explore the activity of novel pharmaceuticals in great detail.
With our proprietary single-molecule tracking (SMT) platform, we can visualize hundreds of thousands of protein motion events in living cells in less than a second. By integrating AI capabilities and advanced automation together with SMT, we can inventory molecular interactions with extraordinary scale and precision.
Single Molecule Tracking (SMT) Technology
Protein activity is mediated by transient interactions between a protein molecule and other components of the cellular environment, including membranes, other proteins, DNA/RNA and small molecules.
These transient interactions define the motion profile of a protein population. By precisely measuring these motions, we describe the activities and the functions of a protein.
Super Resolution Microscopy
Recognizing the need to visualize the dynamics of macromolecules within live cells, our team is building on Nobel Prize-winning super-resolution fluorescence microscopy tools (developed by Eikon co-founder Eric Betzig). Our Single Molecule Tracking (SMT) systems enable exquisitely precise measurement of the dynamic behavior of individual protein molecules in living cells, on a massive scale.
We’re delivering important new medicines for serious diseases.
Eikon has a growing therapeutic pipeline with the potential to deliver important new medicines to address serious illnesses, many with severely unmet medical needs. We have clinical programs that have already provided evidence of activity in the treatment of solid tumors.
Our research teams are rapidly advancing numerous preclinical programs across a broad range of therapeutic areas. Beyond oncology, we invest substantial effort in immunology and neuroscience.
PARP1 – CNSPenetrant
Our diversity of expertise and perspectives is our strength.
At Eikon Therapeutics, we are exploring new dimensions in biology by transcending disciplines. We have assembled a team with expertise in drug discovery, clinical development, data analytics and engineering. We value a diversity of experience and perspectives and actively listen and learn from each other.
