"We've worked closely with the Perlara team since the company's formation. We are proud to be a launch partner of PerlQuests and are excited about the drug leads that will emerge," said Matt Wilsey, President of Grace Science Foundation. "Perlara's nimble platform allows it to quickly iterate and in turn cut down the time when NGLY1 patients can receive a life-saving treatment."
"Perlara's unique drug discovery platform and business model is a perfect fit for advancing our efforts in discovering existing compounds that can be repurposed, and new novel compounds that can be optimized for treating Niemann-Pick Type A," said Steven Laffoon, Co-Founder and President of Wylder Nation Foundation.
Last year, Perlara PBC announced its first commercial deal, a research collaboration with and investment by Novartis for three lysosomal storage disorders, starting with Niemann-Pick Type C.
