Harnessing Lipid Biology to Protect and Repair CNS Function

About Us

At Kisbee Therapeutics, we are engineering recombinant lipoproteins to target the core biological systems underlying neurodegenerative diseases. Our work represents a novel approach to address the problem of lipid dysregulation observed across many CNS (central nervous system) diseases.

Science & Portfolio

Genetically Validated Approach to Restore Lipid Homeostasis

A growing body of scientific evidence has linked dysfunctional lipid biology to the onset and severity of neurodegenerative disease.

Human genetics has shown that ineffective lipoprotein function as well as mutations in lipid transport genes are central drivers of neurodegeneration. Failure to properly regulate lipid transport between neurons, astrocytes, and microglia leads to excitotoxicity, impaired debris clearance, protein accumulation, inflammation, and reduced lysosomal function, all hallmarks of many neurodegenerative diseases.

By use of our highly optimized, engineered lipoproteins, also known as Kisbee Discs, we are able to intervene and restore lipid homeostasis – gathering and transporting lipids to where they are needed.

Kisbee is focused on advancing programs where we can use biomarkers to connect relevant biology in genetically defined patient populations to improve our ability to demonstrate efficacy and to further characterize the potential therapeutic benefit of our approach. Alzheimer’s disease, along with several other rare, chronic, and acute neurodegenerative conditions, are in focus for initial therapeutic development efforts.

Patients & Families

At Kisbee, we have a shared mission with the patient communities we serve to develop new and impactful therapies. We know this mission is best achieved by working together and by having the patient’s perspective of the diseases we are researching.

Our Commitment

To listen, really listen, to the patient communities we serve to understand unmet needs and your lived experience

To be transparent about our work

To actively partner with advocacy organizations globally throughout the drug development process
