Who we are

Atalanta was founded by world-leading experts in RNA interference to pioneer new treatment options for intractable neurodegenerative diseases

We take our name from the mythological Greek heroine Atalanta, a fierce huntress and, in some accounts, the only woman to sail with the Argonauts in their quest for the Golden Fleece. The protein Argonaute 2 plays an essential role in RNA interference — and like the Argonauts, we are visionary and courageous in our exploration of new frontiers.
