  • Ron Newbold, Otsuka America Pharmaceutical, Inc.

Otsuka is among the top 5 pharma companies from Japan, with strong global drug development and commercial capabilities in CNS disorders, kidney diseases and oncology.

Otsuka aspires to be your strong partner in the CNS and renal space. Our antipsychotic franchise around aripiprazoe and brexpiprazole (Abilify, Rexulti) has made us a global leader in mental health. Based on tolvaptan's recent FDA approval for polycycstic kidney disease (Jynarque for ADPKD), we are now aspiring to become a leader in the renal disease space. We are now searching for opportunities to complement our pipeline with innovative therapeutic solutions to clear unmet needs in psychiatric, neurological and renal disorders - regardless of modality (small molecule, biologic, allogeneic cell therapy, gene therapy or digital therapeutics).
