About 2A Biosciences

2A Biosciences is harnessing the serotonin system to fight inflammatory diseases.
Chronic inflammatory diseases are the greatest threat to human health according to the World Health Organization (WHO), and 3/5 deaths worldwide are due to chronic inflammatory diseases. 
This inflammatory crisis motivated 2A Biosciences, a team of serotonergic and GPCR experts, to apply its proprietary mechanistic insights and computational capabilities to a new class of medicines: Serotonergic Anti-Inflammatories (SAIs). SAIs block serotonin’s pro-inflammatory cascade, enable potent anti-inflammatory effects, and restore homeostasis without immunosuppression.

Challenges

Lack of Centralization & Integration

2A’s processes and systems were disparate, piecing together google docs, excel spreadsheets, powerpoints, CDD Vault, Prism and ELNs. They encountered a frustrating challenge – existing tools on the market were inadequate, lacking the crucial combination of a science-specific focus and seamless integration that was desperately needed.

Information Silos

Critical R&D plans often resided with individual team members' expertise. 2A Bio wanted to ensure centralized coordination and removal of any information silos as they scale.

Solutions

“We are utilizing Kaleidoscope as a central hub for data and project management, saving our team 10 or more hours per week in terms of data collection, visualization, project comprehension, and task tracking.”
Marina Crowe, Chief of Staff

After implementing Kaleidoscope, 2ABio noticed an immediate improvement. Kaleidoscope simplifies the oversight of interconnected R&D elements within a unified platform, eliminating the necessity for various incompatible tools or dependence on an individual's memory.

Particularly beneficial for remote teams, Kaleidoscope ensures team alignment, consistent information access, and streamlined collaboration. 2A Bio can now seamlessly operate within Kaleidoscope, removing the need to navigate between many platforms like Google Drive, CDD Vault, ELNs, Excel, and PowerPoint on a daily basis.

“Prior to Kaleidoscope, it would take me 4-5 steps per workflow to do what I can now achieve in one step. I’m also able to spend 3x less time each week searching for, collating, and navigating data”
Gerald Billac, Scientist

Moreover, Kaleidoscope provides customizable data views and progress dashboards that are easy to use and make live project monitoring possible. “When we want to really quickly see our program in Gantt view or by individual tasks, Kaleidoscope makes it really easy to quickly track all of that in one place.”

“Kaleidoscope embodies the epitome of an unparalleled customer partnership.”
Marina Crowe, Chief of Staff

Beyond its robust functionalities, Kaleidoscope distinguishes itself through its exceptional customer support. Working with the Kaleidoscope team means getting access to enthusiastic, reliable, and thoughtful partners who are always there to support and ensure a smooth experience.

“Looking ahead, we’re excited for Kaleidoscope to enable our ability to scale. Not just internally as a team, but also externally as we collaborate with more CROs and Pharma companies. Kaleidoscope provides the ability to seamlessly collaborate with minimal information silos, remain aligned and in tight cadence with our key partners, and effectively manage our growing portfolio of IP, from a data visibility and timeline perspective.”
