Drug discovery is risky and expensive

Academic research on novel drug targets often needs more development and expert input before industry partners will consider investing in it.

  • Technology transfer offices

    Our model is based on sharing both the risks and the rewards of drug discovery with our partners. We cover the cost of our own work, so you don’t need grant funding to work with us, but we can be co-applicants on the grants if needed.

    Research and IP reviews, seminars and discussions with scientists are just some of the ways that we can work together. Please contact us if you would like further information or to arrange a visit.

  • Researchers

    We work in collaboration with you to develop lead stage small molecules and therapeutic antibodies to your novel drug targets. We will keep you fully up to date throughout the process, and can provide advice, tool compounds and results to advance your research and publications.

    If you have a potential drug target please download the Guide for Applications and application form to find out what we look for and to tell us about your target, or get in touch for more information.

We're a not-for-profit organisation

As a charity, our remit is to help deliver therapies to treat any unmet medical need. We are members of the Global Alliance of Leading Drug Discovery Centres, a group of not-for-profit drug discovery organisations working together to improve the conversion of early stage research into much needed therapies.
