KinSea Lead Discovery AS KinSea´s mission is to exploit the potential of marine bioactives for the treatment of human diseases. The initial project focuses on pan-mutant FMS-like tyrosine kinase 3 (FLT3) inhibitors which have strong potential to overcome the limitations of currently available first- and second-generation FLT3 inhibitors for the treatment of acute myeloid leukemia (AML) as well as other hematologic tumors. Our inhibitors are based on a natural product from the Arctic Ocean that has been discovered and further developed by the founding partners. KinSea collaborate closely with LDC, UiT, and UiB.
