About Heptares Therapeutics
Heptares discovers and develops new medicines targeting GPCRs (Gprotein-coupled receptors), a super-family of drug targets linked to a wide range of human diseases. Our pharmaceutical partners include Shire, AstraZeneca, MedImmune and Takeda, and we have raised $40M from MVM Life Science Partners, Clarus Ventures, Novartis Venture Fund and Takeda Ventures.
Heptares is pioneering the application of structure-based drug design to the GPCR super-family of targets and is focused on creating molecules that modulate high-value, yet historically undruggable or challenging, GPCRs. Our platform incorporates 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 have generated a broad pipeline of drug candidates for the treatment of serious disorders, including Alzheimer's disease, Parkinson's disease, schizophrenia, depression, chronic insomnia, addiction disorders, migraine and diabetes.
