The Syapse Mission
Syapse's mission is to accelerate biology-based research and product development. We do this by enabling faster, more informed weight-of-evidence decisions using multiple types of related, but often distributed, biological information. Our applications deliver value to organizations of all sizes, from the individual scientist and small academic laboratories, to emerging biotech companies, and to large molecular diagnostics and pharmaceutical companies.
Syapse's products are web applications that help a biology research and development organization view and make sense of their information.
Our cloud based, enterprise software applications to help scientists organize and communicate biological results, project leaders track and report progress towards meeting scientific milestones, executives make better product development decisions by dynamically viewing the most important program evidence, and organizations share information with external collaborators.
Our breakthrough innovation is a way to characterize and summarize the essential biological information that enables decision-making in product development. This breakthrough is based on our work in semantic computing and biomedical ontologies. While our technology is interesting an innovative, we develop technology to solve real problems that biomedical companies have.
Syapse was spun out of graduate work at Stanford University, and we are led by an experienced, multidisciplinary team of entrepreneurs, software developers, and scientists, who are all determined to solve major problems in the biomedical industry.
Four of our six core team members are startup veterans, and were part of the founding / early technical and business teams at Documentum, NetIQ, Ingenuity, Broadvision, cc:Mail, and Yahoo! Mail. Two of our team members are biologists, one a biotech veteran from Roche and Biogen, and the other a neuroscientist from Stanford and Abbott. We've got PhDs, Masters, and BAs in CS, Physics, Business, Neuroscience, Sociology, and more from Stanford, Harvard, Berkeley, Columbia, UChicago, and U of Illinois.
Life at Syapse
Cheerful, occasionally goofy, but very focused: we are trying to solve big problems and help people get the therapies they need, and we take this very seriously. We get our kicks by building our company together. Be prepared to be excited about what you do, and to get into it with us at the white board and we'll all have a rollicking good time.
Well, OK, there are a bunch of empty wine bottles... We are located on University Ave in the heart of Palo Alto, steps from Stanford. We're in the thick of the startup scene, and love contributing to it.
