Company activities:

Galapagos’ mission is to develop first-in-class medicines based on the discovery of novel targets. Using human primary cells and patient cells, the company discovers which proteins (‘targets’) play a key role in causing diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis, inflammatory bowel disease and fibrosis. Galapagos aims to develop small molecules that inhibit these targets, restore the balance and thereby positively influence the course of the disease. Galapagos’ ambition is to make a lasting positive contribution to society through discovery of breakthrough therapies for diseases with large unmet medical need.
