Careers at Veloxis Pharmaceuticals

Why work for us

Veloxis Pharmaceuticals A/S, formerly LifeCycle Pharma A/S, develops improved versions of difficult-to-formulate drugs with its proprietary drug formulation technology, called MeltDose®. Veloxis is focused on building a clinical and market-stage pharmaceutical business around its late-stage transplant immunosuppression product candidate LCP-Tacro. The company was founded in 2002 as a spin-off from H. Lundbeck A/S. Veloxis is headquartered in Horsholm, Denmark, with an office in Edison, New Jersey. MeltDose works by incorporating a drug substance with low water solubility into a "meltable" vehicle. It is then sprayed on an inert particulate carrier using fluid bed equipment. The melt is solidified when deposed on a particle carrier, and thus captures the active drug in a solid dispersion either as a solid solution or in a nano-crystalline state. The particle size is then increased by controlling and optimizing the product temperature and feed rate of the melt.
