A leading pioneer in leveraging iPSC innovation for drug discovery

The catalyst with the requisite iPSC know-how and experience to empower innovators in drug discovery to advance their science relentlessly, consistently and efficiently.

Get Started

A snapshot of Ncardia

For the past decade at Ncardia, our team has collaborated with a broad array of clients to forge ahead their drug discovery programs for cardiovascular and neurological diseases. Throughout that process, they’ve leveraged our human translational models to increase their probability of downstream success in the drug discovery and development process. At Ncardia, we lean into advanced technology, so we can provide the right solutions: disease modeling, large-scale manufacturing, assay development and screening.

Our milestones to-date

Our organization was founded with the singular focus to help realize the potential of iPSCs to advance human health. Our belief in the science behind this technology has inspired us to develop our own iPSC-derived cell models, to invest in next-generation drug discovery technologies, and, where it merits, to spin off our work into entirely new business entities.
