O2h's 12 FTE lab units are modular, fully-customizable, well-equipped and IT-secure spaces which offer the optimum environment for highly productive, dedicated chemistry teams.

"Heptares has built some great partnerships with large biotechnology and pharma companies who recognize the strength of the Company's GPCR expertise and proprietary StaR® technology's.

About Heptares Therapeutics

Heptares is a drug discovery company creating new medicines targeting G-protein-coupled receptors (GPCRs). The Company is currently leveraging its GPCR expertise and proprietary StaR® technology to build a pipeline of best-in-class and first-in-class GPCR-targeted medicines for the treatment of CNS, metabolic and other diseases.

GPCRs represent the single most important family of drug targets in the human body, yet, due to their inherent instability when removed from cell membranes, little or no structural information about these valuable targets has been available to drive structure-based drug discovery programmes. Heptares' StaR® (Stabilised Receptor) technology enables the first-ever thermo-stabilisation of GPCRs. This breakthrough allows Heptares scientists to resolve GPCR structures and deploy structure-based drug discovery techniques to identify potent and selective drug candidates to previously undruggable targets.

Heptares has raised more than $40 million from leading venture investors, Clarus Ventures, MVM Life Science Partners, Novartis Option Fund and Takeda Ventures, and has formed partnerships with AstraZeneca, Shire, Takeda and Novartis.
