Welcome to SynapCell

SynapCell is a biotechnology company providing the CNS drug manufacturing industry with translational drug discovery solutions to reveal the therapeutic potential of their molecules targeting CNS disorders.



Epilepsy solutions

Since 2005 SynapCell has been assessing the efficacy of your drug candidates for epilepsy using surface and deep EEG recording. We use a translational approach combining relevant animal models of different types of epilepsy, protocols performed in clinical conditions, and quantitative results to reveal brain dysfunction and epileptic seizures.


Solutions for other CNS disorders

With a translational approach combining relevant animal models of CNS disorders, protocols performed in clinical conditions and EEG-related technologies to reveal brain activities, SynapCell assesses the effects of your drug candidates in the treatment of CNS disorders with unmet needs.


EEG phenotyping of rodent models

Develop your personalized drug discovery tool using SynapCell’s expertise in the EEG phenotyping of rodent models to improve your insights into the relevance of your therapeutic targets in CNS disorders.

What's new

SynapCell mandated by UCB to enhance its epilepsy drug discovery program
Grenoble (France), 2nd December 2014 -

Synapcell to assess the potential of UCB’s candidate molecules in the field of epilepsy. The two-year agreement will take advantage of SynapCell’s MTLE (mesial temporal lobe epilepsy) mouse solutions.

More than 65 million people world-wide are affected by epilepsy (WHO). Full drug development is time-consuming, complicated and costly, making it a major advantage to be able to select the one compound to be taken to the market as early as possible from a range of thousands of substances. SynapCell’s ten-year experience in this field and its unique solution combining translational in vivo models of epilepsy with EEG to record and quantify subclinical seizures, has made it a key player in this field.

UCB is committed to discovering and developing new therapies to improve patient care. UCB aims to use SynapCell’s expertise to expand its innovative discovery platform in epilepsy and rapidly obtain preclinical proof-of-concept data for selected molecules that can be then prioritized for future development. As part of this aim, UCB and SynapCell announce today their partnership.
