Our Mission

At Heron, our mission is to improve the lives of patients by developing best-in-class medicines that address unmet medical needs. By applying our innovative science and technologies to therapeutic agents with well-known pharmacology, we aim to develop patient-focused solutions that potentially:

  • Are more effective than other pharmaceutical agents in the same class;
  • Are safer or better-tolerated than other pharmaceutical agents in the same class;
  • Broaden the clinical use of a pharmaceutical agent and potentially reduce the dependence on other classes of drugs with more harmful side effects; and
  • Enable multimodal treatments that more fully address the multiple mechanisms of a disease or disorder.

Also, by applying our technologies to already-approved pharmacological agents and utilizing the 505(b)(2) regulatory pathway, we seek to potentially accelerate the development and lower the clinical and regulatory risk of our product candidates.
