Paratek Pharmaceuticals, Inc. is a private biopharmaceuticals company engaged in the discovery and commercialization of new therapeutics that treat serious and life-threatening diseases. Paratek has a particular focus on developing new therapeutics for the infectious disease market to combat the problem of antibiotic resistance. Paratek was founded in 1996 by Dr. Stuart B. Levy, the world-renowned expert in antibiotic resistance and Professor of Molecular Biology and Microbiology and of Medicine at Tufts University School of Medicine, and by Dr. Walter Gilbert, the successful biotechnology entrepreneur and well-known Nobel Prize-winning Professor at Harvard University. Paratek was created to harness the 30+ years of research and discovery in mechanisms of antibiotic resistance and tetracycline chemistry by Dr. Levy and his scientific team at Tufts University School of Medicine.

  • The Tetracycline Resistance Project (Tet Project), based on expertise in medicinal chemistry
