Enhancing its collaboration with Shenyang Pharmaceutical University, HUYA has key partnerships with leading global pharmaceutical companies such as Solvay Pharmaceuticals, Abbott, and Schering-Plough. By establishing an extensive global network and world-class drug development capabilities HUYA has become the partner-of-choice for Chinese institutions, universities and biopharma companies looking to maximize the value of their pre-clinical and clinical stage drugs for global markets. HUYA has acquired the development and commercialization rights to two novel development stage drug candidates sourced from China and is developing these candidates in the U.S. for cardiovascular and oncology indications.
