Synovo is a drug discovery company with a primary focus on inflammation and innate immune processes.
We are located in Tübingen, Germany which is both a major centre for basic research and also home to a vibrant bio-medical start-up scene.
We have two main business areas:

  • we provide drug discovery services in pharmacology, medicinal chemistry and bioanalytics, and,
  • we develop in-house novel therapeutics and related diagnostics

Our culture is focused on generating insight through inter-disciplinary, collaborative work with clients and partners.   
Within our team of nearly 50 people we have specialists in synthetic chemistry, pharmacology, analytics, immunology, neurology and biochemistry.  In addition, we have a broad network of research partners throughout the world collaborating with us in areas like basic disease mechanisms, drug formulation technology, surface modification and drug mode of action.
