Our company

The cornerstone of our company is “research”: everyone, from senior scientist to intern, is involved in the research of new ideas, technologies, and markets. Our core area of research is diarrheal diseases such as cholera, and the rare genetic microvillus inclusion disease.

Vanessa Biotech has etched its niche in developing innovative products by commercializing complex ideas with simple solutions. This is done by creating a respectful teamwork environment conducive to open unrestrained dialog and invention.

The company’s mission is to enhance shareholder value, to provide a positive stable work environment for all employees, and to deliver healthcare products that improve and increase access to care while decreasing the costs of healthcare delivery.

Our life saving research

Our team at Vanessa Biotech is working on the first medicine that can treat microvillus inclusion disease, with the ultimate goal of eliminating the patient’s dependence on intravenous nutrition or TPN, and the need for a bowel transplant.
