About Healx

Healx is a mission-driven technology company pioneering the next wave of drug discovery in order to bring novel, effective treatments to rare disease patients around the world. There are 7,000 known rare diseases that affect 400 million people across the globe, but only 5% of those conditions have an approved treatment.

Founded in Cambridge, UK, in 2014 by Dr Tim Guilliams (a Biochemical Engineer and tech entrepreneur) and Dr David Brown (former Global Head of Drug Discovery at Roche), Healx has raised $70 million to date, added over a dozen projects to its risk-balanced therapeutic portfolio, and built a cross-functional team of over 90 tech and drug discovery experts.
