Bicycle Therapeutics is a UK biotech developing highly constrained bicyclic peptides (bicycles) as a novel class of therapeutic
Bicycles have the affinity and specificity associated with antibodies, but are much smaller in size and can be chemically synthesised. They have been shown to address targets not easily tractable with small molecules (e.g. protein-protein interactions).The company is exploring applications in a number of areas where these advantageous features have the potential to show significant benefit.
Bicycle Therapeutics is backed by top-tier VC investors and is seeking to realise the full potential of Bicycle technology by developing an internal pipeline of bicycles into the clinic, as well as allowing partners access to the technology platform through selected R&D collaborations.
