Our People

Jnana is building the first drug discovery platform targeting the solute carrier (SLC) family of metabolite transporters. We are comprehensively interrogating SLCs, so that we can transform our knowledge into new therapeutics for patients who lack viable treatment options. Jnana is a Sanskrit word meaning wisdom gained through experience, and it is a concept that threads through our daily work. From our thoughtful, rigorous approach to drug development to our dedication to building a legacy of healthy people and happy families, we are guided by a deep sense of purpose.

MEET OUR TEAM

We are building a company where all employees aspire to empower each other and to work together to make breakthrough medicines.
