About Morphic Therapeutic
Morphic Therapeutic is a biotechnology company developing a new generation of oral integrin therapies.  Drawing on integrin biology breakthroughs from the lab of noted entrepreneur and scientific founder Tim Springer, Morphic has developed an exclusive platform to build on these discoveries, complemented by a partnership with computational chemistry leader Schrödinger, Inc., that facilitates the rapid and iterative design of clinical candidates.  Morphic was created in 2015 with support from Timothy Springer, PhD, Polaris Partners, Schrödinger Inc., and ShangPharma and raised $51.5M in 2016 from top tier investors.  In September 2018, Morphic Therapeutic completed an $80 million Series B financing round to advance multiple programs into the clinic.  Integrins are involved in multiple disease areas, including inflammation, fibrosis, vascular diseases and cancer, and inhibitors are clinically validated.  The combination of Morphic’s deep Integrin expertise with your skills will enable a rapid path to novel and effective drugs for both orphan and blockbuster indications.  Morphic’s laboratories are located in the AstraZeneca BioHub in Waltham, MA.
