Shaping Tomorrow's Mental Health Landscape

Our Ingenious Approach

Our scientific approach centers around harnessing the potential of oxytocin, a hormone with diverse neurobiological functions, to address complex healthcare challenges such as autism, chronic pain, and addiction. We've developed a promising oxytocin receptor agonist, that offers a novel and exciting pathway to improve the lives of individuals affected by these conditions. Our research is driven by the profound impact oxytocin can have on social behavior, pain modulation, and addiction, offering hope for transformative treatments.
