SUMMARY

  • Moleculent AB, a company pioneering technology to study the communication between cells in human tissue, secures $26million in series A round funding.
  • Moleculent is on a mission to develop advanced technology-enabled products that leverage new insights into the molecular foundation of human biology.

ARCH’s Patrick Weiss has been appointed Chairman. Sean Kendall from ARCH, together with Magnus Persson from Eir Ventures, have also joined the company’s Board of Directors.

Moleculent’s functional biology platform detects cell-cell interactions and profiles their communication directly within their tissue environment. This novel approach allows scientists to see how healthy cells function and how diseased cells differ at a complex, networked level.

A complete picture of the cell-cell communication in a tumor, for example, offers a practical understanding of the signaling pathways and molecular mechanisms involved in drug response. Studying cell-cell interactions between many different receptors and ligands, in a tissue context, represents a paradigm shift in understanding biological systems by enabling scientists to see a more comprehensive picture and to decode the cell-cell conversations and disease pathways.

Olle Ericsson, PhD, co-founder and Chief Executive Officer of Moleculent said, “Analysis of DNA, as well as RNA and protein expression inform us about the building blocks of a cell but do not directly measure how cells are working together. Understanding cell-cell communication networks in tissues has the potential to bring us into a new era of understanding functional biology and human disorders, The Moleculent platform has been designed to allow scientists to uncover radical new insights into the cellular level of human biology and pathology. We are very happy to partner with ARCH Venture Partners and Eir Ventures to bring this enabling platform to the scientific community.”

Moleculent is led by a team of industry veterans with expertise in developing and globally commercializing life science tools at leading companies including Halo Genomics (acquired by Agilent), Vanadis Diagnostics (acquired by Perkin Elmer), and Spatial Transcriptomics (acquired by 10x Genomics).

About Moleculent

Moleculent is on a mission to develop advanced technology-enabled products that leverage new insights into the molecular foundation of human biology. The company is developing the first functional profiling platform that allows scientists to map cell-cell communication directly in clinical tissue, providing insights to accelerate the functional understanding of biology.
