description
Asceneuron will develop effective therapeutics for Alzheimer’s disease and related neurodegenerative diseases such as tauopathies. By focusing on areas of high unmet medical need, Asceneuron aspires to become a leading biotech company specialized in small molecule drug discovery for neurodegenerative diseases.

Current treatment options provide limited benefits supporting the urgent need for more efficacious and better tolerated medicines that address symptomatic relief as well as disease progression.
