Avalon Pharmaceuticals Inc.

Avalon Pharmaceuticals Inc. hopes to harness the explosion of target information to identify promising drugs without having to rely first on finding new targets. It is employing its target-independent platform to look at the activities of compounds much earlier in the discovery process than conventional screening methods.


Psychiatric Genomics Inc.

Psychiatric Genomics will use information generated by the Human Genome Project, along with gene expression, microarray and high-throughput technology to uncover the complex, multiple genetic factors implicated in mental illness. It will initially focus on schizophrenia, bipolar disorder and autism--underserved illnesses with strong evidence of a genetic component.
