About our founder
Founded by Advent Life Sciences, Amphista is built on the groundbreaking science from the laboratory of Professor Alessio Ciulli, University of Dundee, a world leader in the field of targeted protein degradation. Alessio Ciulli is Chair of Chemical and Structural Biology at the School of Life Sciences, University of Dundee, and is Founder and Director of Dundee’s new Centre for Targeted Protein Degradation (CeTPD).
Amphista is named for a mythical twin-headed being from Greek mythology called Amphisbaena that was said to possess many health-giving properties; this mythical creature evokes the bi-functional nature of Amphista’s novel molecules.
In ancient times, Amphisbaena played many roles in healthcare, from promoting fertility to “curing” ailments ranging from the common cold to arthritis.
Taking a somewhat more scientific approach, Amphista is building on this same spirit to develop advanced TPD therapies able to address a wide range of needs in global health.
