Biotech Acetylon Pharmaceuticals Inc. is moving from its Albany Street location in Boston to the Seaport Center near the South Boston waterfront.

Acetylon is developing selective small molecule histone deacetylase (HDAC) inhibitors and other targeted drugs for the treatment of cancers, and for inflammatory, neurodegenerative, genetic and infectious diseases.

The company has leased 9,700 square feet of space for its new headquarters, including office and lab space, as well as two biosafety level 2 labs that are scheduled to be completed this summer. According to realtor Jones Lang LaSalle, which represented the property owner Beal Companies, Acetylon is the first R&D tenant in Seaport Center.

The news came just a week after Acetylon bumped up its Series B funding to $27 million, and closed the round short of its initial stated goal of $30 million.

About Acetylon Pharmaceuticals

Acetylon Pharmaceuticals Inc. is developing next-generation selective small molecule histone deacetylase (HDAC) inhibitors and other targeted drugs for the treatment of cancers as well as inflammatory, neurodegenerative, genetic and infectious diseases.
Selective HDAC inhibitors have the potential to reduce or eliminate the substantial side effects observed with current non-selective approaches while also realizing their extraordinary potential for enhanced therapeutic benefit through higher dosing, extended administration and reduction of combination drug toxicity. Selective HDAC inhibitors also have potential for improved therapeutic benefit in autoimmune and other inflammatory disorders, neurodegenerative diseases and certain genetic and infectious diseases.
