Our greatest resource

With more than 100 researchers representing more than 16 countries around the world, and disciplines ranging from biomedical engineering to medicinal chemistry to fluorescence-guided surgery, our scientists bring a rich diversity of experience to pharmaceutical discovery. Working across disciplines and in collaboration with clinical partners, we develop and promote innovative drug candidates for cancer, neurological disorders, trauma, infectious diseases, immune disorders, diabetes, obesity and cardiovascular disease.
