Millions of years of evolution has produced chemistry finely tuned to influence biology. This is the ideal starting point for therapies with the potential to reshape human health. We are harnessing the full potential of nature's uncharted chemistry to address the greatest medical challenges of our time.

60% of therapies developed in the last 30 years are derived from nature, yet only 5% of the natural world’s chemistry has been explored.

Our Source of Chemistry

A land of uninterrupted evolution

We are exploring untapped natural ecosystems to find the next generation of world-changing medicines hidden in wild fungi. Our first research site, Kapoose Creek, located on the northwest coast of Vancouver Island, was part of a rare ice-free corridor during the last ice age. As a result, this land has a rich ecosystem and unique mycological biodiversity.
