About us


We started Mercaptor Discoveries because science moves forward on unsteady feet, relying on a tiny amount of fortuity mixed into a vast trough of human frailty. Good luck cannot be ignored. Much of our time and effort has revolved around the small molecule cysteamine. We recently tripped over something unexpected, something lying outside of our assumptions. Avoiding the false comfort of certainty, honest scientists sometimes catch a tiny glimpse into the infinite Universe. These rare insights are more likely to help move the world forward than countless years spent trying to prove expectations. The opportunity obliges us to take responsibility for the continued development of what we have learned.
