An Ocean of Discovery
Epitracker is a San Diego based life sciences company that discovers and optimizes natural small molecules to treat some of the world's most devastating diseases. Epitracker analyzes metabolomic, genomic and clinical data from archived Navy dolphin samples collected throughout their lifetimes, as part of their routine health care. Through this process, we have discovered over 200 small molecules that may help to improve longevity and help treat neurodegenerative diseases, fibrotic diseases, and pulmonary diseases in dolphins and humans.
Inspired by Nature
Nature patiently and continually hones life over eons, striving for physiologic perfection in millions of species living in Earth's most challenging environments. Thus, within nature, we can find new approaches to improving health. At Epitracker, we are unlocking secrets long held by the ocean and finding new paths to help improve life for all.
Epitracker by the Numbers
At Epitracker, we believe that animal health and human health are not binary. For nearly two decades, Epitracker's founders have helped to protect the health and welfare of dolphins. Our founders learned that, as big-brained, long-lived mammals, dolphins can develop aging-associated conditions similar to humans. Today, Epitracker's discoveries aim to help both dolphins and people.
