Our Company

Intelligent Pharma is a biotechnology company dedicated to developing computational technologies for drug discovery, and providing services based on these technologies to pharmaceutical companies, biotech companies and research institutes.

Our mission is to be the preferred provider of computational chemistry services and life science informatics and to continue to deliver cutting edge technologies to the scientific community. Intelligent Pharma is a service company, and for that reason, we never own the rights to the intellectual property of the projects that we deliver to our clients. Therefore, the owner of the intellectual property is always the client.

As a SME we have innovation at our heart, in a fast moving field we strive to incorporate the latest scientific and technological advances into our products and services. To achieve this we have a rich pipeline of exploratory research projects and engage in research consortia with leading academic groups.

Our History

Our story started in 2007 in the Barcelona Science Park, Spain. Our founder Dr. Ignasi Belda recognised the trend for companies to outsource computational chemistry, and the need for a company that could deliver very personalised and specialised services for drug discovery. He set up the company with support from Mr. Jaime Belda, Ms. Laia Navarro and Prof. Ernest Giralt, recruited an experienced multi-disciplinary team and set to work constructing a technology toolkit.

Today Intelligent Pharma has grown to a headcount of 20 people with representation in four countries. We have carried out over 200 projects for clients and expanded into additional sectors including cosmetics, petrochemicals and informatics services. We have formed many collaborations with academia including participation in prestigious European R&D projects as well as business partnerships with other service providers in order to offer clients larger projects.

We are excited about the next decade and the challenges and opportunities that it will bring.
