Mannin's primary focus is developing a first-in-class therapeutic eye-drop for glaucoma in adults and children, using a research platform designed to help develop new drugs for that indication and cystic kidney disease, among other diseases. Lead drug candidate MAN-01 is designed to treat abnormal vessels within the eye-thus treating glaucoma at its root causes.
