Date:3/22/2010

apies, Inc. (ITI) is located in New York City and is developing novel drugs for the treatment of neuropsychiatric and neurologic diseases and other disorders of the central nervous system. The company began by commercializing technologies developed in Dr. Greengard's lab at The Rockefeller University. The company's most advanced drug, called ITI-007, is currently in Phase II clinical trials for the treatment of schizophrenia and sleep disorders associated with neuropsychiatric and neurological diseases. ITI recently completed a Phase II clinical study demonstrating that ITI-007 improves sleep in patients with sleep maintenance insomnia. Other programs are focused on the development of therapeutics for the treatment of cognitive deficits in schizophrenia and other disorders, bipolar disorder, Parkinson's disease, attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder, depression and Alzheimer's disease.

Dr. Greengard has received numerous awards including the Metropolitan Life Foundation Award for Medical Research, the Charles A. Dana Award for Pioneering Achievements in Health, the Ralph W. Gerard Prize in Neuroscience from the Society for Neuroscience, The National Academy of Sciences Award in the Neurosciences, and the 3M Life Sciences Award of the Federation of American Societies for Experimental Biology. He is an Honorary Member of the National Academies of Science in Sweden, Norway and Serbia and has been the recipient of many honorary degrees. He is a member of the National Academy of Sciences and of the Institute of Medicine of the National Academies.
