Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

There are may things that will cause a no start condition. The fuel pump may not be running due to a loss of power or ground, it's possible that yu do have fuel pressure but are missing spark due to a number of reasons. A loss of cam or crank signal, a wiring issue, or improper cam timing could be the cause of the no start condition.

Does the fuel pump run when the key is turned on?
What year and model is the vehicle?
