Our Mission

To deliver life-saving medicine faster when every second counts


We relentlessly seek new technologies that will save lives and improve outcomes for patients facing life-threatening emergencies


We’re an Australian clinical stage pharma company that pursues innovative product platforms for the emergency treatment of life-threatening conditions.

We were founded in Brisbane by ground breaking intensive care specialist and researcher, Professor John F Fraser. He understands the impact that anaphylaxis and cardiac arrest has on a patient’s outcomes and quality of life.

At DMC we see a critical need to deliver life-saving drugs faster to patients when they’re experiencing life-threatening situations outside of hospital. 

So we’ve developed a needle-free device for people experiencing anaphylaxis. It has been re-engineered and re-formulated to save lives when every second counts.
