About Evelo Biosciences

Evelo Biosciences is a clinical-stage company pioneering the development of a new modality of medicine designed to act on the gut-body network – monoclonal microbials. Our monoclonal microbial product candidates are orally delivered and intended to modulate systemic immunology and biology by acting on multiple naturally evolved biological pathways through the gut-body network. We believe they have the potential to be broadly applicable across many diseases – including autoimmune, immunoinflammatory, metabolic, neurological, neuroinflammatory diseases and cancer. We have observed in preclinical animal models that monoclonal microbials neither circulate throughout the body, nor require gut colonization. These properties could present significant potential advantages over existing therapies, including tolerability, efficacy and convenience and allow for pharmacological intervention at all stages of disease. Evelo Biosciences was conceived and created within VentureLabs®, Flagship Pioneering’s institutional innovation foundry, and launched by Flagship in 2015.
