Out-of-the-Jungle Animalesque Biotech R&D

Radical Jungle-Tech R&D

"We still do not know one thousandth of one percent of what nature has revealed to us. Look deep into nature, & then you will understand everything better." – Albert Einstein

 

Jungle Innovations, specializes in radically transformative  (skunkwork) nature-biotech R&D innovation of the highest priority & value. More specifically, we focus on human bio-optimization,  because we believe nature is a highly enriched source of real world ideas & that speak volumes; it speaks to us. Biology may not seem like technology, it's wet-'n-wild, volatile & somewhat unpredictable, sometimes even uncooperative with a mind of its own. Yet, it is this very quality, its variability, that renders it quintessentially-sophisticated & gives it the most surprising, if not downright awesome capabilities, e.g., of growth & gain-of-function; solid-state tech doesn't do that. And, this non-stop, consummate & unmatched evolutionary tweaking, tinkering, is what gives it its near-omnipotence.

Nature as Inspiration, Model, Mentor, & Yard-Stick

"For a successful technology, reality must take precedence over public relations, for nature cannot be fooled." – Richard P. Feynman


Many of nature's creations are hands-down & bar-none unmatched-sophisticated, having survived an eons gauntlet of unrelenting, say, punishing & cut-throat-unforgiving hard times. Undoubtedly, there's still much to learn from her, & we are acutely cognizant of the fact that we're so no match & in so very many ways. In life-sciences in particular it's often a classic Achilles versus tortoise case: you can run, but you can never catch-up because she too can run, does run, & fast. Hence, in many cases, we believe it to be far more intelligent to take a page out of her play-book & tap-elevate her creations to suit rather than seek to out-pitch her by reinventing already perfectly good-working wheels, wheels that anyhow always seem to inevitably run off the track & off the arc, her arc. Leslie Orgel put it succinctly well: "Evolution is cleverer than you are."  

Phenomenal Nature-Marvels & Enigmatic Wonders

"I believe the world is incomprehensibly beautiful – an endless prospect of magic & wonder.” – Ansel Adams


We exclusively focus on those rare, long-elusive & enigmatic phenomenal marvels & wonders of nature that possess unmatched & untapped, sky's the limit, say, holy-grail biotechnological capabilities. These aren't biotechnologies with merely one or a few high-value applications, rather, they're extremely broad-spectrum & cross-cutting with an unmatched number of capabilities, they are platforms & with anti-fragile (gain-of-function) qualities. Obviously, we'd be talking about age-old-enduring, practically everlasting, end-state, biology & that's so deep-core & hardwired-inbuilt without which life struggles, may even succumb.
