Transforming Opportunity into Value

What is CVI?

CDRD Ventures Inc. (CVI) is the commercialization vehicle of The Centre for Drug Research and Development (CDRD), Canada’s national drug development and commercialization centre. With affiliations across more than 50 of Canada’s top research universities and institutes, CDRD is the only fully-integrated centre of its kind in the country — and one of a handful in the world — with the full expertise and infrastructure to source, evaluate, and develop both small molecule and biologic innovative technologies in virtually any therapeutic area. And with a first right to negotiate for any of the technologies developed at CDRD (over 100 to date), CVI has a continuous and unparalleled pipeline of the most innovative and commercially-promising pre-validated and thus de-risked technologies in Canada.
