About Yumanity Therapeutics
Yumanity Therapeutics is transforming drug discovery for neurodegenerative diseases caused by protein misfolding. Despite the estimated patient population of 50 million people worldwide, this remains an area of tremendous unmet medical need with no approved disease-modifying therapies or cures. Yumanity is working to identify and develop new, disease-modifying therapies that address illnesses such as Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, and amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS). The company’s approach concentrates on correcting the cellular pathologies driven by misfolded proteins and the altered biology and phenotypes driving these diseases.
