Rare Thyroid Therapeutics is a privately held, clinical stage research and development company, located in Stockholm, Sweden. We are specialized in the development of therapies for rare thyroid signalling disorders, a disease area which is currently underserved and where there is a significant unmet medical need, without available therapies. Our team holds considerable experience from the rare and orphan space and have been involved in several successful companies and development projects within the field, including Swedish Orphan (Sobi), OxThera, Medical Need and Wilson Therapeutics.

Our collaboration with Erasmus Medical Center in Rotterdam to develop the first cure for MCT8 deficiency was in 2017 selected for a three-year EU grant within the EUREKA EUROSTARS framework
