Welcome to Anavex Life Sciences Corp. Our SIGMACEPTOR Discovery Platform produces therapeutic candidates designed to activate SIGMAR1, a novel pathway designed to target chronic central nervous system (CNS) conditions with genomic precision. 

Person-focused Dedication

Our product portfolio platform is inspired by the lived experiences of the people living with neurodegenerative and neurodevelopmental  disorders and the strength and dedication of carers.


Therapeutic Candidates

Recent research findings suggest that the small molecule therapeutic candidates produced by our proprietary portfolio platform establishes novel modes of action aimed at a variety of CNS disorders like Alzheimer's disease, Parkinson's disease, Rett syndrome and others.

Understanding SIGMAR1

Our proprietary SIGMACEPTOR discovery platform produces therapeutic candidates that lead to the modulation of SIGMAR1. Data suggests that activation of SIGMAR1 results in the restoration of complete housekeeping function within the body and is pivotal to neural cell homeostasis and neuroplasticity.

Our corporate presentation contains forward-looking statements. Potential investors should refer to the risk factors in our reports filed on Edgar.

A therapeutic approach for all ages

The SIGMACEPTOR Discovery Platform is designed to produce therapeutic candidates for people of all ages. From neurodevelopment to neurodegenerative conditions, our SIGMAR1 portfolio platform enables therapeutic discovery utilizing the body's own defense mechanism to restore function.


“Assisting the body in re-establishing homeostasis could very well be a key therapeutic step to solving several life-altering CNS conditions.”
