Conquering epilepsies and brain conditions with courageous science


what we do

Ovid was founded with the hope and determination to meaningfully improve the lives of people and families affected by neurological diseases. We strive to conquer epilepsies and brain conditions with courageous science. We are developing a next generation of targeted small molecule therapies that seek to reduce seizures and deliver improved safety and tolerability. Through compounds with unique or potential best-in-class mechanisms of action, we hope to pioneer effective new treatments, and one day, potentially change the course of disease.

who we serve

Bringing life changing therapies to communities is a personal mission for us. We are privileged to know many children, adults and families in the epilepsy and cerebral cavernous malformation communities. Their photos fill our walls, our conference rooms carry their names, and their insights inform our actions.
