Drug Candidate Screening Platform

The drug candidate screening platform support researchers to identify and develop novel chemical tools to help you interrogate your particular field of interest. We contribute with +30 years of combined experiences from the pharmaceutical industry.

Services provided

  • Consultations within medicinal chemistry, chemical biology and drug discovery and development
  • Small molecule screening 

- assay development/optimization

- screening using in house libraries or from collaborators

- mechanism studies using pathway specific small molecule libraries

- guidance follow-up medicinal and synthetic chemistry 

- facilitate project transfer to/collaboration with other infrastructures
