Knopp Biosciences

Compassion. Commitment. Community.

We can imagine no mission greater than working to advance a potential treatment for a fatal disease such as ALS. We use novel strategies to seek new insights into the mechanism of neurodegeneration and strive to translate those discoveries into potential products to address some of medicine’s most enduring challenges.

As a company, and as individuals, we are dedicated to charitable fundraising and building awareness for supportive care, primarily in our own community. We have forged a deep and sustaining relationship with the Western Pennsylvania chapter of the ALS Association (ALSA), whose patient services activities make a monumental difference in the lives of patients with limited treatment options. As we broaden our R&D to other neurological diseases, we have also initiated a partnership with the Parkinson’s Foundation of Western Pennsylvania.

Our City

Knopp has joined Pittsburgh’s renaissance as a center of biomedical research and commercialization and serves as a mentor to the emerging Pittsburgh biotechnology community.

We are located on Pittsburgh’s historic South Side in a century-old warehouse outfitted with state-of-the-art electrophysiology, cell biology, and medicinal chemistry labs. Nearby, the University of Pittsburgh, Carnegie Mellon University, and Duquesne University conduct world-leading biomedical research.  

We invite you to explore Pittsburgh and all it has to offer, including its entrepreneurial opportunities; excellent education; and world-class performing arts, museums, and professional and collegiate sports.
