Center for Innovation and Stimulation of Drug Discovery
Discovering the world of small molecules and biologics
CISTIM Leuven vzw is a non-profit research organisation based in Leuven (Belgium), founded by KU Leuven (University of Leuven) in 2007.
Hand-in-hand with the Centre for Drug Design and Discovery (CD3), a drug discovery investment fund, CISTIM bridges the gap between innovative biomedical research emerging from academic institutes or biotechs and the pharmaceutical industry. Together CD3 and Cistim drive the discovery of the new medicines of tomorrow.
Today's discoveries, tomorrow's cures
CISTIM complements academic research groups and biotech, with industry-standard drug discovery capabilities, to discover new medicines that address critical medical needs.
By combining early drug discovery with innovative research, we deliver to pharma and biotech industry potential drug candidates for further development.
