Maria Soloveychik, PhD
CEO at SyntheX, Inc.


Maria Soloveychik is the co-founder and CEO of SyntheX, a therapeutics company focused on accelerating drug discovery using synthetic biology. She is the co-inventor of the company’s core technology, ToRPPIDO - a cell-based platform that relies on genetic engineering and evolutionary selection to synthesize and identify compounds that disrupt or bridge protein-protein interactions. SyntheX was founded in 2016 and was incubated at the IndieBio accelerator in San Francisco, where Maria acts as a mentor to other startups.

Maria received her PhD from the department of Molecular Genetics at the University of Toronto, where she discovered novel pathways linking metabolism and epigenetic signaling. Maria was previously a research scientist at a structural genomics consortium, where her work led to the determination of numerous structures and identification of several drug candidates.
