Working at the intersection of nature and technology to treat cancer and inflammation.


Peel Therapeutics is on an expedition to unlock nature’s secrets and overcome life-threatening conditions.

These evolutionary outliers rarely make their way to patients, and we are determined to change that.

We are an evolutionary-inspired, clinical-stage biotech company developing medicines to transform patients’ lives. Peel (the Hebrew word for “elephant”) launched with our focus on cancer-fighting proteins in elephants and we quickly recognized the power of using evolution’s solutions to treat and prevent disease. In addition to developing elephant p53 (EP53) nanoparticles for the treatment of cancer, our team is advancing additional therapies derived from nature’s superpowers to treat cancer and inflammation.

The Resident Experience

Provided lab space for our employees as we progress and grow this start-up biotech company

Jim Levison

Altitude is an enriching environment that provides countless opportunities for our company to grow, network, fundraise, and further develop our products.

Robert Williams

Lauryn and Chandana have been excellent. They consistently go above and beyond their duties to help my company and me be successful. They have been instrumental in getting us connected with vendors, equipment set up, lab issues resolved, and so much more. They are always more than willing to help with whatever questions I may have. It has been an absolute pleasure to work with them.

Liz Enrico

The lab space has been extremely helpful, having access to all the equipment has been crucial for company progression.

Luke Bennink

Residence allowed our company to begin running experiments and moving forward while we raised capital for our own equipment and space.

Andrea Mazzocchi

Being able to access the lab facilities has been amazing! As well as having access to a community of other scientists for help and to learn from.

Eva Serio

Altitude Lab has served us as a great launch pad. Before we started the company, we did not fully appreciate the logistical intensity of starting a biotech. Altitude lab has allowed us focus on our science while the rest of the lab needs and so much more were taken care of for us.

Trent Fowler

Lab space, and being able to move/work away from the university has been huge for us. From a technology standpoint as well as allowing us to work faster and more efficiently. Having a working environment (desks) where we can grow and collaborate has been useful too. The space allows us to be dynamic as we grow and our needs change

Susan Wojralewicz

The key thing is infrastructure for us. We've been able to navigate legal stuff and fundraising without a ton of outside help but having a physical space to receive shipments on our behalf and instrumentation for us to use has really helped. I expect that benefit to jump when we finally move our lab operations there!

Ian Quigley

Having an affordable place to set up our lab and do our initial work is beyond measurable value. Also, the ability to connect with others in the same space for advice and shared experience is also incredibly helpful.
