Small molecule drug discovery and antibody humanization
Small molecule drug discovery
Our Centre for Therapeutics Discovery collaborates with academic researchers from any institution on small molecule drug discovery projects.
You can access our expertise in assay development, computational and medicinal chemistry. We have a large compound library and screening hits can be returned to you for further investigation. We also aim to promote our collective success by publishing results from our collaborations in high-profile journals.
Our Therapeutic Antibody Group, part of the Centre for Therapeutics Discovery, collaborates with academic scientists to generate therapeutic antibodies.
You could access our expertise in antibody humanization. The
Therapeutic Antibody Group has substantial antibody engineering
experience. It has humanized over 40 antibodies, of which 11 have been
progressed to the clinic, and 2 (Actemra® and Tysabri®) are on the
In addition to creating new therapeutic antibodies, we may also be able to provide you with useful research reagents and opportunities to publish in high-profile journals.
What we look for
We are constantly on the lookout for new and interesting drug or therapeutic antibody targets. If you have a target that you think may be suitable, please get in touch.
