Esperion Therapeutics, Inc., is a biopharmaceutical company dedicated to the discovery, development and commercialization of a novel class of therapies to treat cardiovascular and metabolic diseases, including atherosclerosis, as they relate to high density lipoprotein cholesterol, "HDL-C", also known as the "good" cholesterol.

The technology platform for Esperion is based upon the Reverse Lipid Transport (RLT) pathway. The RLT pathway is responsible for removing excess cholesterol and other lipids from arterial walls and other tissues for transport to the liver and elimination from the body. The Company's product candidates work by stimulating the RLT pathway through the enhancement of key HDL properties, which may result in improved vascular structure and function. Esperion is focusing its efforts on developing both acute and chronic therapies for cardiovascular and metabolic diseases.

Esperion was founded in 1998 by, among others, members of the Warner-Lambert/Parke-Davis (now Pfizer) team that discovered and developed atorvastatin, the highly successful multibillion-dollar drug. Since that time, an additional group of exceptional scientists and specialists has joined the Company. Many of these individuals have been instrumental in the discovery, development and commercialization of several of the pharmaceutical industry's most successful therapies. It is this combined team that makes Esperion a leading enterprise in HDL drug discovery and research.
