What we do

Bactevo is a 21st century drug discovery company addressing diseases for which others are failing to provide effective treatments in mitochondrial, neurodegenerative, cardiovascular/metabolic, joint/tissue disease and cancer.

Discovering Medicines Faster

Ultimate Synthetic Chemistry Platform

Greater than a Billion Patient-relevant Screens in a Day

Mapping the Patient-Chemical Interface for Safer Medicines

Medicines On Demand from Complementary Natural Products Platform

Therapy Areas

Bactevo are targeting a fundamental cellular process to create drugs that treat debilitating neurodegenerative, inflammatory, cardiovascular and metabolic diseases as well as many cancers. By focusing on the mitochondria, the energy source in every cell, we can target the fundamental causes of many age-related diseases. Through this approach we can also address debilitating, life-limiting mitochondrial diseases for which there are currently few effective therapies.

Technology

Bactevo has developed a tightly integrated set of proprietary technologies that radically disrupt current methods of creating new medicines. This Totally Integrated Medicines Engine (TIME) has been devised to answer the needs of drug discovery and development scientists utilising the best in 21st century technologies of microfluidics, nanofabrication and artificial intelligence.
