D&D Family Company

Building a global biotech company

D&D runs global product development operations via multiple partnerships and owns subsidiaries focused on specific therapeutic areas. D&D is a technology and financing holding company that operates at two primary bases with research and development sites in Korea (Pangyo) and U.S. (Maryland area)

D&D was founded in 2014 in Korea expanded to the U.S. through research collaborations with multiple scientific co-founders of D&D family biotech from academia and industry.

Neuraly is a clinical-stage company whose mission is to translate scientific discoveries in neurology into revolutionary new drugs that can radically improve and prolong the lives of people suffering from the devasting consequences of diseases such as Parkinson’s disease (PD), Alzheimer’s disease (AD), and other neurodegenerative disorders.

Neuraly was founded in 2016 as a Johns Hopkins spinoff biotech based on the foundational research by world class neuroscientists led by Ted M. Dawson, M.D., Ph.D., Leonard and Madlyn Abramson Professor and Director of Institute for Cell Engineering at the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine. Neuraly has accumulated a wealth of knowledge in the role of glia biology in neuroinflammation and neuroprotection as well as success in advancing a risk-diversified product for PD and AD.

NLY01, the lead asset, is a peptide-based drug that targets microglia/astrocytes-induced neuroinflammation and has proven strong therapeutic efficacy in preclinical models of both PD and AD.
Precision Molecular (PMI) is a clinical-stage company with the mission to develop imaging biomarkers and theranostics (targeted therapy combined with diagnostics) for management of patients with CNS disorders and cancer.

PMI was founded in 2019 as a Johns Hopkins spinoff biotech by Martin G. Pomper, M.D., Ph.D, Henry N. Wagner, Jr. Professor and Director of the Division of Nuclear Medicine and Molecular Imaging at the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine. PMI’s foundational intellectual property was provided by his world class radiology research team, known as the Precision Molecular Imaging Coalition.

PMI features various imaging biomarker products in the clinic with great potential to improve early diagnostics of neurodegenerative diseases and cancer. Utilizing these imaging biomarkers to follow disease progression may provide clinical researchers with powerful tools for early assessment of drug efficacy in clinical trials.
Fibrotic Disease
Theraly is a preclinical-stage company whose mission is to develop innovative treatments for various forms of life-threatening fibrotic disease.

Theraly was founded in 2015 as a Johns Hopkins spinoff biotech. Theraly’s founding programs are based on the discoveries of the research team of Seulki Lee, whose pioneering research has elucidated a TRAIL biology pathway underlying the origins of disease in tissue remodeling and fibrosis which led towards the discovery of a potentially universal anti-fibrotic drug.

The lead asset TLY012, a human protein-based drug, selectively targets myofibroblasts, one of the significant originators of fibrosis, and reverses established fibrosis in preclinical models of fibrosis in liver, pancreas, and skin. TLY012 has the potential to cure fibrotic diseases, including systemic sclerosis, liver fibrosis/cirrhosis, and chronic pancreatitis, as well as fibrosis driven cancers.
Other Programs
In addition, our therapeutic pipelines include new medicines addressing unmet medical need in diabetes and obesity as well as nonalcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH) – conditions affecting millions of people worldwide. Also, we are investigating potential anti-aging therapies that may slow the aging process and extend lifespan.
