Senti Bio was founded to create a new generation of smarter medicines that outmaneuver complex diseases using novel and unprecedented approaches.
Founded on smart science
Senti Bio has built a synthetic biology platform that enables it to program next-generation cell and gene therapies with what we refer to as “gene circuits.” These gene circuits, which are created from novel and proprietary combinations of DNA sequences, reprogram cells with biological logic to sense inputs, compute decisions and respond to their cellular environments.
