About the NEOMED Institute (NEOMED)
The NEOMED Institute is a successful and innovative Canadian not-for-profit R&D organization with a single mission: to enable and accelerate the commercialization of Canadian life science discoveries. To accomplish this mission, NEOMED Institute operates two complementary and integrated divisions:

  • NEOMED Therapeutics in-licenses great scientific discoveries from Canadian academic centers and research institutes and then funds and develops these programs to stages that are attractive for partnering or stand-alone financing. All proceeds from successful out-licensing and exits are re-invested in new pipeline projects.
  • NEOMED Innovation Center operates a world-class life sciences ecosystem in Montreal, Quebec, that was created as an enabling environment for biotechnology and contract research organizations to establish, grow and prosper. Today the NEOMED Innovation Centre hosts 30 life sciences companies employing over 350 people who work in our two state-of-the-art R&D centres. Our tenants benefit from NEOMED’s shared services model (analytical chemistry/in vivo pharmacology, etc.) and an entrepreneurial culture enabled by collaboration and scientific innovation.

The NEOMED Institute is funded by pharmaceutical partners, the Ministère de l’Économie, de la Science et de l’Innovation du Québec, and the Networks of Centres of Excellence (NCE) of Canada as well as the revenue generated from the out-licensing/sale of their pipeline projects and the operation of their facilities.
