Sometimes capital finds you. That’s what happened to Cigall Kadoch, Ph.D., assistant professor, Dana-Farber & Broad Institute. She was busy untangling the mysteries of a chromatin remodeling complex and its relationship to disease onset. She wanted to found a company, but she wanted to do it her way and with the right partner.

At about the same time, Douglas Cole, M.D., managing partner at Flagship Pioneering, was looking for a brilliant, disruptive idea to form a company on.

When he met Kadoch, he knew he had found what he was looking for, and Foghorn Therapeutics was born.
