Vision

Adding Therapeutic Value® to small molecules in order to optimize product life cycle management. A lot of progress can be made with what is already known. What’s next?

Our innovative approach to deciphering the actual Mechanisms Of Action of therapeutic small molecules opens up new paths of investigation while enabling rapid de-risked development.

HARMONIC PHARMA’s core innovation is our unique Pharmacological Rediscovery® know-how based on the polypharmacology paradigm to characterize novel use of small molecules from diverse sources.

We identify the complete set of biological targets of therapeutic compounds.
We’re not restricted to new molecules either. Our approach has already been successfully tested using known molecules for which we found new applications. Our work on small molecules has essentially but not exclusively carried out in the pharmaceutical area!

As human well-being goes beyond being cured from diseases, HARMONIC PHARMA goes further too. Our long-standing partners work in a wide area of applications, from nutraceutical and cosmetics to industrial.
