Neuro-Sys is an innovative French Drug Discovery and Services company focusing on neurodegenerative diseases, such as :

Alzheimer’s disease (AD)
Parkinson’s disease (PD)
Huntington’s disease (HD)
Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS or Lou Gehrig’s disease)
Multiple Sclerosis (MS)
Peripheral Neuropathies

Neuro-Sys has developed specific preclinical models of neurological diseases to accurately determine the pharmacological profiling of leads compounds and explore their underlying mechanism of action. All processes are standardized and automated.

Neuro-Sys also develops its own drug discovery programs based on an innovative and unique approach.

With the support of its team of neuroscientists, pharmacists and its high level scientific board, Neuro-Sys is the partner of choice to provide innovative and promising active new compounds and preclinical services to the pharmaceutical, nutraceutical, and biotech industries.
