Grünenthal Innovation - Focus Areas

Pain, Specialty Therapeutics, Devices & Technologies

The key innovation areas in focus are:

  • PAIN: Building on our research and development expertise in pain we turn our attention to new therapeutic approaches and special indications to shape the field and transform the future of pain – targeting focused indications (niches), precision medicine (e.g. non-responder) and disease modification (e.g. reversal of chronification).
  • SPECIALTY THERAPEUTICS: We are searching for new assets/ projects beyond pain and are highly flexible with regard to therapeutic focus. We develop solutions for small or orphan indications with a high unmet medical need for patients with severe diseases.
  • DEVICES & TECHNOLOGIES: Another important pillar is the exploration of new technologies and devices. Building on our NTE expertise, we are investigating new platform technologies and devices in pain and beyond to provide therapeutic alternatives to the patient.
