Vibe Pharmaceuticals

Company Overview

Vibe Pharmaceuticals, LLC is an early-stage drug discovery company developing effective therapeutics for musculoskeletal disorders that result in bone and muscle loss. The Vibe Pharmaceuticals team has developed an innovative platform to identify mechano-responsive molecules which can serve as new-generation musculoskeletal therapeutics. As proof-of-concept, the team isolated a secreted vibration-induced bone-enhancing (Vibe) molecule, which builds bone in three small animal models of age-related osteoporosis.
