Committed to customers and success, we use all drug discovery approaches

We are exploring entry points into drug discovery and medicinal chemistry projects in an unbiased manner. High throughput screening (HTS) and focused screening yields typically good quality hits through additional counter screens to ensure hit validation. This approach allows for the highest level of serendipity. Our molecular design capabilities are following both structure- and ligand-based designs, as well as peptidomimetic techniques. Chemogenomics and fragment-based screening focuses on phylogenetic trees and good experience has been made across gene families when binding sites have been preserved. Selecting starting points from literature or IP knowledge yields traditionally high success rates with a shorter path to proof of concept (PoC) in animal models.
