Keystone Pharma is a research based pharmaceutical company which licenses out its products to companies like Magadon Industries and Weide GmbH. Founded in 1975 by a group of self made millionaires, its primary goal was to find a cure for aging. The company relocated its headquarters to Seattle in 1996 in the Lake District.
The original aging research was looking for a magic bullet, a chemical compound to halt or reverse the aging process. That work never really paid off and they spun off that research division in a separate company, Pancea Pharmaceuticals about 2 years ago, in a joint venture with Verdant Technologies.
The publicly traded R&D company has numerous stakeholders but the largest (with a 31% stake) is Magadon Industries. Other major owners include Weide GmbH and the Chieron Group also large pharmacology businesses.
