About Relay Therapeutics

Relay Therapeutics is committed to creating medicines that will have a
transformative impact on patients by building a unique discovery
platform centered on understanding how the conformation of proteins
relate to function. Whereas prior approaches to imaging proteins have
been limited to static pictures, Relay Therapeutics’ approach overcomes
this challenge by combining unprecedented computational power with
leading edge experimental techniques in structural biology, biophysics,
chemistry and biology. This integration illuminates – for the first time
– the full mobility of a protein and provides key insights into how the
dynamic nature of a protein’s conformation regulates function. By
applying these insights, Relay Therapeutics aims to modulate protein
conformation to develop novel therapies for patients. The company’s
initial programs are focused on developing therapeutics in oncology.
Headquartered in Cambridge, Massachusetts, Relay Therapeutics is a
private company launched in 2016. To date the company has raised $520M
from investors including Third Rock Ventures, SoftBank Vision Fund, GV,
Casdin Capital, BVF Partners, EcoR1 Capital, Foresite Capital,
Perceptive Advisors, Tavistock Group and an affiliate of D.E. Shaw
Research.
