Blend Therapeutics was founded by three leaders in the fields of nanomedicine and chemistry: Dr. Robert Langer and Dr. Stephen Lippard of Massachusetts Institute of Technology, and Dr. Omid Farokhzad of Harvard Medical School. The company is focused on combination medicines stemming from its proprietary Maestro™ platform, which is expected to target the underlying mechanisms of cancer and other complex diseases.
