Our team’s passion for innovation is driven by our deep commitment to discover and develop products that give patients hope for a longer, healthier, and happier life.

Our proven proprietary drug discovery platform has led to the discovery of multiple targeted therapies, which we have advanced into human clinical studies, including Abivertinib, for the treatment of non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC), and AC0058, for the treatment of autoimmune diseases. With a growing pipeline of novel and proprietary drug candidates, ACEA is well-positioned to continually bring much-needed targeted therapies to patients worldwide.

We are a privately held, fully-integrated pharmaceutical company, headquartered in San Diego, CA operating two subsidiaries in China, ACEA Pharmaceuticals (Quzhou) and ACEA Pharma Research (Hangzhou).
