“Because we’re a nonprofit with a mission to make the world a better place, there’s a lot of flexibility in the types of projects we can pursue. We can do earlier stage research that may have higher impact without as much emphasis on the bottom line. And when we collaborate with pharmaceutical companies, it’s truly a co-development process—sharing expertise and innovating together.”

New ways of thinking about human health  

Uncommon in the world of tech development, SRI Biosciences brings together basic bioscience, applied research for early-stage IP generation, and translational development — moving the lab to the real world.   

Our Human Sleep Lab is studying sleep’s impact on women’s health among other current themes. Sleep biology also explores medical neuroimaging advancements and preclinical sleep research.   

Our biopharma R&D services dive deep into preclinical drug development. We also bring expertise in automated chemistry design; medicinal chemistry and synthesis; and licensable drugs.    

We invent some of the world’s leading technology and tools to create new precision medicine possibilities: FOX Three Molecular Guidance System (MGS), DiaCyt, TALL, Techneins, and more.    

Organizations work with SRI Biosciences to innovate around biomarker and biological assay development, biohazard detection devices, and health-monitoring wearables.
