60P was founded with a mission to discover, develop and distribute new medicines for treatment, and prevention of tropical diseases. Our core business is delivering tropical disease drug research and development while providing an attractive return for investors.

We have created an open innovation approach to reduce the time, cost, and risk needed to build a portfolio of drug discovery and development projects. We collaborate with leading research institutions in the United States, Australia, and Singapore to discover and develop medications for dengue fever and malaria prevention.
