reMYND NV, founded in 2002 as a spin-off from the University of Leuven,
drives the development of disease-modifying treatments against Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, Diabetes
and other orphan protein misfolding disorders. reMYND is organized
along two independently managed business units, the Contract Research
Organization (CRO) and the own Drug Discovery & Development unit:
2.We discover and develop our own proprietary disease-modifying treatments against protein-misfolding disorders, such as Diabetes, Alzheimer's disease, Parkinson's disease, Huntington and amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, treating the root causes rather than only the symptoms. We are exploring collaborations on those programs with large pharma companies worldwide.
