Hello and welcome to the Clinuvel blog.
Here at Clinuvel we’ve been working for over 10 years on the development and refinement of afamelanotide, an Australian drug that we believe will be effective in assisting patients living with a number of UV and light related disorders.
But our research and area of particular interest and expertise has proven to be a lot wider than just pharmaceutical and medicinal applications for our drug. We are fascinated by, and have enormous passion, enthusiasm and interest in all things light related.
From the history of the study and use of light, through technological developments that today we may take for granted and of course the medicinal and social implications of the full spectrum of light and our environment. It’s all of special interest to us.
Light is an exceptionally broad and intriguing topic and one that we want to discuss with you while sharing the knowledge, insights and stories that we have gathered, or discovered along the way.
