Company mission and values
Polyphor is a Swiss research-driven pharmaceutical company developing innovative products with high therapeutic benefit to the patient and providing high quality support to its industry partners engaged in drug discovery.
Who we are and where we go
Polyphor’s competitive edge is based on its two proprietary, innovative and complementary technology platforms, PEMfinder® and MacroFinder®.
Both technologies are used in collaborative drug discovery projects with Pharma companies. In addition, Polyphor is developing and partnering a pre-clinical and clinical portfolio of own drug candidates (PEMdrugs) in important disease areas. We focus on the therapeutic benefit to the patient, the best guarantee for economic success in our view.
Polyphor has an excellent reputation as a generator of innovation in drug discovery. We are proud of our strong track record and long-lasting business relations, established for more than ten years, during which we have supported our Pharma partners in their small molecules drug discovery processes. This is the basis on which we will continue the development of our company into a research-driven pharmaceutical company with focused market presence - an incubator of innovation in drug discovery with a direct link to the patient.
Polyphor’s co-workers are distinguished by a high level of personal dedication. Their passion for science and their job enables Polyphor to stand out from its competitors.
We encourage, motivate and retain entrepreneurial, pro-active and hard working employees who think “out of the box”. We nurture a working environment stimulating individual development and team spirit and provide an atmosphere where employees can feel proud of their achievements and their contributions to the success of Polyphor.
Commitment and motivation must be coupled with technical/scientific abilities and talents. We want to bring these to and maintain these at the top level. We therefore promote the further training and education of our co-workers, both internally and externally.
Our sustainability objectives and long term view
Polyphor’s stakeholders focus on sustainable development. We are convinced that our company is on track to achieve long term success if it continues to provide ever increasing added value to its Pharma partners and sustainable benefits to patients, co-workers, shareholders and society.
