to improve lives
is our way of aligning science and technology to impact lives
We use the term fusion innovation to describe the open exploration of new ideas, and the ability to drive remedies quickly and robustly to Proof of Concept and then all the way to patients. We solve problems by exploring new ideas to provide for those patients who have not found effective solutions for their illness. Our unique approach allows us to identify the points of convergence between molecules, needs, and technology to generate new treatment possibilities.
A journey of discoveries
We follow a structured process to come up with new ways to treat disease. It starts by listening to the patients. Then we cast our nets wide, gathering solutions from different fields and combining them in innovative and effective ways. Our diverse expertise allows us to converge medical needs and molecular science with our team’s technological ingenuity, until we find what works.
Listen — We listen closely to patients and physicians. We connect with their needs and their pain points.
“Listen to your patient, he is telling you the diagnosis.”—Sir William Osler
(Canadian physician, one of founding professors of Johns Hopkins Hospital)
Research — Our team then imagines possibilities. We comb the vast world of molecular structures, mechanisms of action and use cases, using our cross-disciplinary perspective and technologies to home in on how different elements could fuse together to address patient needs.
“Research is to see what everybody else has seen, and to think what nobody else has thought.”
Albert Szent-Györgyi (Hungarian biochemist, Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine)
The Spark! — The moment when the different pieces of the puzzle come together and an initial Product Concept emerges.
“Eureka isn’t about finding pieces of a puzzle. It’s about creating and putting those exceptional pieces together.”
Test — We start by testing the key hypothesis in the lab.
“The only relevant test of the validity of a hypothesis is comparison of prediction with experience.”
Milton Friedman (American economist, Nobel Memorial Prize in Economic)
Validate — Once we have a confirmation from the Test stage, we rigorously assess the development pathway and streamline the project into Proof of Concept.
“The logic of validation allows us to move between the two limits of dogmatism and skepticism.”
Jean Paul Gustave Ricœur (French philosopher, Kyoto Prize in Arts and Philosophy)
