Engineering Microbes for Mucosal Drug Delivery

Tenza reprograms symbiotic bacteria from the human microbiome to administer medicines directly to the organs they naturally inhabit. We do so using a ML-powered, synthetic biology platform that enables us to engineer a wider diversity of bacteria to produce higher yields of drugs than ever before.
