Our Story

A History of Discovery

Sapient has more than 10 years of experience in advanced discovery. Today, as an end-to-end biomarker discovery CRO, we are helping sponsors and researchers accelerate drug discovery and transform therapy with biomarker-guided insights.
jain laboratory


Jain Laboratory was founded at the University of California San Diego with a mission to innovate mass spectrometry (MS) to enable deeper probing of human biology at population scale. This multi-disciplinary, 25-person team of chemists, engineers, mathematicians, epidemiologists, and physicians developed the next-gen MS systems we use today.

sapient history


Jain Lab was awarded over $30M in Federal, Foundation, and Industry funding to tackle biological questions across diverse disease areas including heart disease, cancer, lung disease, liver disease, Alzheimer’s, autoimmune disease, vaccine development, maternal fetal health, environmental studies, nutritional studies, and drug response studies.

top biomarker discovery lab


Sapient was founded by the core Jain Lab members upon seeing the potential of its technologies to transform biomedicine. Now, Sapient is one of the largest capacity biomarker discovery labs in the world.

sapient bill and melinda gates foundation grant


Sapient was awarded a $9.2M grant from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation to support studies aimed at identifying biomarkers that can inform novel nutritional, disease-prevention, and disease-treatment interventions. This grant represented an extension of prior funding awarded to Sapient from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation in 2020.

cap accredited biomarker discovery lab


Sapient's high complexity CLIA laboratory received accreditation from the College of American Pathologists (CAP), confirming adherence to stringent CLIA regulations. As a CLIA-certified, CAP-accredited lab, Sapient can support rapid translation of biomarker discoveries to regulated clinical applications, to further accelerate development and deployment of much-needed diagnostics and therapies.
