Its subsidiary Heidelberg Pharma GmbH is now doing business as Heidelberg Pharma Research GmbH. The Annual General Meeting on 20 July 2017 adopted a resolution to change the name of the Company and relocate its headquarters from Munich to Ladenburg.

“Our Company’s core business has been driven by the research and development activities of our subsidiary Heidelberg Pharma GmbH for some time.

Heidelberg Pharma is working to enhance its value by developing and licensing the proprietary ATAC technology platform, entering into project partnerships and building a proprietary ATAC portfolio. Clinical development of the first proprietary product candidate HDP-101 in multiple myeloma is expected to begin at the end of 2018.
