About Heptares Therapeutics
Heptares discovers and develops new medicines targeting GPCRs (G-protein-coupled
receptors), a super-family of drug targets linked to a wide range of human diseases. We
have established R&D collaborations with Shire, Takeda, AstraZeneca, MedImmune and
Novartis Option Fund, and have raised $40M in venture financing from MVM Life Science
Partners, Clarus Ventures, Novartis Venture Fund and Takeda Ventures. Heptares is an
industry pioneer in GPCR structure-based drug design and has built a unique capability for
discovering novel molecules that modulate historically un-druggable or challenging GPCRs.
Our integrated discovery platform includes proprietary technologies for engineering
stabilised GPCRs in their natural pharmacological conformations, identifying previously
unknown chemistries for GPCR protein-drug interactions, and deploying advanced
fragment-based approaches to GPCR target space for the first time. Using this approach, we
are generating a broad pipeline of drug candidates for serious CNS and metabolic
disorders, including Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, anxiety, chronic insomnia,
addiction and diabetes. For more information, please visit http://www.heptares.com.
