About

A-Alpha Bio leverages synthetic biology and machine learning to measure, discover, predict, and engineer protein-protein interactions.

Our mission is to improve human health by unlocking the potential of protein-protein interactions.

Our AlphaSeq + AlphaBind platforms generate and synthesize the high-resolution data needed to discover and optimize rare and effective antibodies, identify compatible protein pairs for molecular glues, and fuel machine-learning models to further accelerate the discovery and optimization of high-impact drugs.

A-Alpha Bio was founded in 2017 as a spinout from the University of Washington’s Institute for Protein Design and Center for Synthetic Biology.

We are working to accelerate the future of medicine.
