We advance molecules
that embrace the complexity of disease.

We envision a world where data-driven drug discovery is the norm.

Our mission is to get medicines to patients faster by:

Leveraging polypharmacology to design advanceable molecules from the get-go

Embracing the complexity of disease

Upholding scientific integrity at all costs

Creatively partnering at unprecedented scale


The Cyclica way

We’re proud to be built and based in Toronto, Canada with employees across Canada, the USA, and the UK. 

We hire good people first, last, and always. We are nice to work with and nice to be with — both in good times and bad.
