Improving human health and health security through the study of bat biology.
We believe that bats hold the key to a safer and healthier world. Paratus Sciences is a start-up biotech company committed to improving human health and health security through an understanding of bat biology. We are focused on identifying and developing potential therapeutics for a myriad of diseases by unlocking the secrets of the bat genome.
Bats: The Next Therapeutic Discovery Platform
Among the most misunderstood of all animals in the world, bats have undeservedly received a bad reputation and remain understudied. Over the last 65+ million years, bats have developed many remarkable physiological traits that may very well hold the key to improving human health and health security.
In addition to powered flight, bats have evolved the ability to control inflammation, tolerate viral infection, resist cancer, accept extreme diets, and live exceptionally long lives for a mammal of their size. However, the elusive lifestyle of bats coupled with a lack of scientific tools and reagents has made the study of these extraordinary animals difficult and slow going.
We are developing the tools and methods necessary to understand bat biology and apply these insights to identify and develop new therapies to address some of the most challenging health issues facing humankind.
