Expesicor has been working diligently towards preventing, treating, and curing neurological disorders since its establishment in 2016. Our pipeline offers a plethora of approaches to achieve our mission: proprietary therapeutics, imaging probes, and drug screening tools. While our focus began with epilepsy, it has since expanded to include depression, Traumatic Brain Injury, Alzheimer’s Disease, and other debilitating brain disorders.  

Our highly capable team is driven by a personal connection to the mission, adding urgency and passion to research and development. We are comprised of highly dedicated lifelong learners that strive to continuously expand our comfort zones to become better scientists, better team members, and better people. Our culture is laid-back; we are Type A in the lab and Type B in the lunchroom. We are based out of Missoula right in the heart of the northern Rockies where we actively work to fulfill our vision of a world without suffering caused by brain disorders.

Team X Alumn

"Being a member of Team X offered me the valuable opportunity to gain hands-on skills and experience while working with a tight-knit research team. The work I did was valuable and varied; as a member of Team X I was able to participate in fast-paced research with real world applications rather than a limited student-level project. In addition to gaining skills in multiple lab procedures, I also had the opportunity to learn about the business side of pharmacological discovery and development through team meetings and grant proposals. My internship with Expesicor allowed me to experience neurological research and develop professional skills outside of an academic setting, and I would highly recommend Team X to anyone interested in pursuing a career in research."

Team X Alumn 

"Working at Expesicor was one of the most positive work experiences I've ever had. The team was so open and supportive and truly seemed to understand the value of collaborative teamwork. I was given the opportunity to take initiative in exploring many different sides of software development from working on both the front and back end of Presteeg to machine learning that really allowed me to build skills programming in a way I had never explored previously all within a supportive team environment. I am so grateful to the team for this experience and I know the skills I gained will continue to be invaluable as I continue throughout my career. "
