Initial Target Indications – Psychiatric and Neurological Disorders
We are advancing to late-stage clinic development in two primary areas: Clinical High Risk for Psychosis & General Anxiety Disorder.
Mental health is a complex and underserved global pandemic, further exacerbated by COVID-19.
Many of the solutions available to patients today are poor as drugs often come with unwanted side effects or lack of efficacy. Our mission is to introduce improved treatment options and thus to aid a vast number of patients suffering from debilitating mental health conditions, and help them return towards a state of homeostasis, thereby allowing them to live longer and happier lives.
We plan to achieve this through a strategy rooted in rigorous science and a best-in-class team with long standing expertise in the pharmaceutical and life sciences sectors.
