At Kallyope, we believe that the gut is the gateway to our internal world. Containing millions of neurons, the gut informs our brains about our well-being, metabolism, and nutritional state. The gut-brain axis—the communication highway between our gut and our brain—offers an unprecedented opportunity to access and influence brain centers involved in fundamental human processes. An understanding of the biology mediated by the gut and gut-brain circuits will change the way we think about food, nutrition, and human physiology.
Founded and headquartered in New York City, we are developing an industry-leading platform to harness the gut-brain axis. Our cross-disciplinary biotechnology team will integrate cutting-edge technologies in sequencing, bioinformatics, neural imaging, cellular and molecular biology, and human genetics to provide an understanding of gut-brain biology that will lead to transformational therapeutics and consumer products to improve human health and nutrition.
