Mission: 

Pcovery is a drug discovery company focused on the anti-fungal area. It combines expertise within protein structure, medicinal chemistry, drug discovery and -development, and pathogenic fungal infections to create a novel class of anti-fungals to treat serious invasive fungal infections.

There is a strong need for anti-fungals, given the infection rates of common fungi, from Candida (yeast) to other more serious infections (e.g. from Aspergillus types) is still so high – particularly in the immuno-compromised.

Its lead development project focuses on targeting a novel membrane protein found in the fungal cell membrane.
