Fact: Diabetes

Our mission is to develop pharmaceuticals that treat obesity. We support that mission with a distinctive approach, targeting fat cells with drugs that reduce fat, and with a novel drug discovery technology, the capability to isolate fat precursor cells from human fat tissue, stimulate these precursor cells to form functional human fat in the “test tube”, and identify drug candidates that reduce the number and fat content of human fat cells. We are therefore utilizing the problem tissue, fat, from the relevant organism, humans, to discover drugs that produce the desired result, less fat.
