Confo Therapeutics

Confo Therapeutics has been founded as a VIB-VUB spin out by VIB and Capricorn Health-tech Fund (CHF). The technology developed by Prof Steyaert has the potential to become the standard in GPCR (G-protein coupled receptor) drug discovery. It allows to screen on active confirmations of drug targets, which is a substantial advantage to existing platforms. GPCRs are largely viewed as one of the most attractive drug target class. A significant number of GPCRs targets are yet to be commercially exploited.
