Agios' novel drugs will be targeted therapies directed at modulating key metabolic pathways such as glycolysis (sugar metabolism), fatty acid metabolism, and autophagy (self-metabolism). The company's primary focus is in oncology, though Agios' platform may also be applicable to other therapeutics areas featuring diseases of cellular proliferation, including autoimmune, inflammatory and neurological diseases. Agios has a scientific team that is second to none in the field of cancer metabolism. The company was founded by the core thought leaders who have made key advances and discoveries in the field of cancer metabolism. Agios has attracted and continues to seek out top talent to translate the science of cancer metabolism into transformational drugs for patients.
