Dear Ms. Sarmento and Mr. McCann:
On behalf of the Company, we are transmitting the following responses of the Company to the comments of the Securities and Exchange Commissions staff (the Staff) as set forth in the letter of Ada Sarmento and Joe McCann, dated May 19, 2021 (the Comment Letter), to Amendment No. 1 of the Draft Registration Statement on Form S-1 submitted confidentially to the Securities and Exchange Commission on April 30, 2021.
The Company is concurrently filing via EDGAR the Registration Statement on Form S-1 (the Registration Statement). The responses herein were provided to this firm by the Company. In this letter, we have recited the comment from the Staff in italicized, bold type and have followed the comment with the Companys response in regular type. All references to page numbers in the Companys responses refer to page numbers in the Registration Statement.

Once you have an estimated offering price or range, please explain to us how you determined the fair value of the common stock underlying your equity issuances and the reasons for any differences between the recent valuations of your common stock leading up to the initial public offering and the estimated offering price. This information will help facilitate our review of your accounting for equity issuances including stock compensation and beneficial conversion features. Further, please revise your table on page 67 to address the options granted after March 31, 2021. Please discuss with the staff how to submit your response.
Company Response: The Company will provide a cheap stock letter once it has an estimated offering price or range, explaining how it determined the fair value of the common stock underlying the Companys equity issuances and the reasons for any differences between the recent valuations of the Companys common stock leading up to the IPO and the estimated offering price.
Our Collaboration and License Agreements, page 95
We note your disclosure that Integral will be eligible to receive development, regulatory and sales milestone payments. Please revise to disclose the aggregate future potential milestone payments you may be required to pay Integral. Also, please revise your disclosure so that the royalties on net sales are within a ten percent range. In this regard, we note that your disclosure currently states that the royalties will range from the high- single-digit to the low-double-digit percent, which could represent a range greater than ten percent. Please also revise to provide similar disclosure concerning the potential milestone and royalty payments under the Tyligand agreement.
Company Response: In response to the Staffs comment, the Registration Statement has been revised. Please see pages 5, 95, 122, and F-42, which now provide the aggregate future potential milestone payments to Integral under its agreement and provides a specific royalty rate. Please also see pages 94 and F-22, which now provide the aggregate future potential milestone payments to Tyligand under its agreement and provides the specific royalty rates.
Choice of Forum, page 126
We note that your revised risk factor disclosure, as well as your disclosure on page 126, does not indicate whether the forum provision applies to Exchange Act claims. In addition, the risk factor disclosure on page 15 appears to indicate that the provision is limited to state law actions while the disclosure on page 126 indicates that the provision applies to Securities Act claims. Please advise and revise to provide greater certainty regarding the scope of the provision and the risks to shareholders stemming from the provision.
Company Response: In response to the Staffs comment, the Registration Statement has been revised. Please see pages 15 and 126, which indicates that the forum selection provision will apply to Exchange Act claims and to federal claims and outlines the risks to shareholders stemming from this provision.
