Medetia specializes in the identification of small molecule therapeutics specifically for rare LOF (loss of function) diseases. Medetia is composed of a multidisciplinary team of 7 people, biologists, chemists and pharmacologists and conducts phenotypic tests to both identify new therapeutic targets and transform the first candidate molecules towards their pharmaceutical development. Since 2019, Medetia is conducting two funded research projects in rare ciliopathies. Medetia is moving towards a broader application in ciliary pathologies using its expertise in high content microscopy, drug repurposing and computational design in medicinal chemistry.
