Welcome to AiCuris: The Powerhouse for Anti-infectives    


“Committed to making the difference”

AiCuris is a pharmaceutical company focused on the discovery, research and development of novel, resistance-breaking antiviral and antibacterial agents for the treatment of severe and potentially life-threatening infectious diseases.

Founded in 2006 as a spin-out from Bayer's virology and bacteriology research department, AiCuris is now an established “powerhouse for anti-infectives” and is one of the few biotech companies world-wide to have successfully brought a drug to market, and therefore to patients (Prevymis® 2017/18).

Today AiCuris has an innovative pipeline of anti-infective agents and a team of internationally recognized scientists in Research and Development. By focusing on therapeutic areas with high medical need, the company is positioned for growth and success.
