Synlogic

A company developing therapeutic probiotics that alter the human gut microbiome to treat diseases.

Synologic is a clinical-stage biopharmaceutical company developing living medicines to treat a range of metabolic diseases, inflammatory diseases, and cancers. The technology platform uses synthetic biology to engineer beneficial bacteria, or probiotics, that alter the composition of the gut microbiome to restore proper metabolic functions. The populations of bacteria comprising the gut microbiome play a critical role in regulating the human immune system, metabolic function, brain health, and more. The company was founded in 2007 and is headquartered in Boston, Massachusetts.
