Smart drug development for better patient treatment and value creation
Debiopharm’s vision of healthcare is not limited to making new medicines available. We strongly believe you can be an actor in your own medical care.
For 40 years, we have been passionate about what we do: drug development.
Our story began in 1979 when Dr Rolland-Yves Mauvernay, convinced that many useful therapeutic products were abandoned before reaching their full potential, decided to found the Swiss-based Debiopharm Group. Having started with only two people, Debiopharm is now a group of five companies active in the life science areas of drug development, GMP manufacturing of proprietary drugs, diagnostic tools and investment management. Together with his son Thierry Mauvernay, they have built a team of well over 420 dedicated professionals.
The Group is now headed up by Mr Thierry Mauvernay, driven by the same passion as his father. He is fully committed to the group’s current activities and planning the future to ensure long-term continuity.
