Genetic engineering for the neuroscience revolution

Empyrean is harnessing the power of genetic engineering to transform how we treat severe neuropsychiatric and neurologic diseases

A new therapeutic approach made possible by genetic engineering

We have developed the first and only platform to genetically engineer small molecule therapeutics from fungi and plants — and discover new compounds

Addressing a major gap in treatment

Our team is developing new therapies to address the continuing unmet need of treating neuropsychiatric and neurological disorders.

With our technology, we can potentiate neuroactive compounds produced by plants and fungi to treat patients who are affected by devastating diseases such as depression, post-traumatic stress disorder, substance abuse disorders, and pain.
