Abstract:
Sea4Us is a Biopharmaceutical start-up created in 2013 and settled in Sagres (Portugal), focused on the discovery and development of new pharmaceutical drugs, based on core expertise in ion channels and marine biology.

Sea4Us's core activities are based on Compound Library Generation, Drug Discovery and Preclinical Development.

Our compound library derives from marine organisms with unique features, which are important sources of ion channel modulators. We screen such compounds against a number of molecular targets (ion channels) such as NaV, Kv, CaV and TRP channels, which are involved in several pathologies.

Due to its nature, the Sea4Us Drug Discovery & Development Platform allows the identification of novel pharmaceutical drugs for several unmet clinical needs. It can be used to identify novel modulators for ion channels involved in different pathologies such as Chronic Pain, Epilepsy, Diabetes, Cardiac arrhythmia, Hypertension and Skin diseases, among others.
