August Therapeutics is a biotechnology company that was founded in 2013 by Randy Schreckhise and Mark Sullivan, and is headquartered in San Diego, California. The company is focusing on researching the biology of taste receptors to develop new methods of treating eating disorders and obesity by focusing on ways to reduce binge, or hedonic, eating patterns. August Therapeutics wants to develop ways to change the way the body perceives food by creating a negative feedback loop that reduces hedonic eating through manipulating the perceived palatability of foods.
