Venatorx Pharmaceuticals was founded in June 2010 by our three visionary, fearless leaders Drs. Christopher J. Burns, Daniel C. Pevear and Luigi Xerri. Fast forward to today, we have 80+ employees, three programs discovered in-house that are now clinical stage, with more in the pipeline!! Cheers to the many milestones to come as we work purposefully every day to get antibiotics and antiviral therapies into the hands of physicians to effectively treat patients. Below just a few of the highlights!
