The DDU is one of a kind in the UK – a drug discovery research lab in the heart of a university campus that brings together assay development, screening, cell biology, medicinal chemistry, structural biology, computational chemistry and Drug Metabolism and Pharmacokinetics (DMPK), in one integrated facility.
We continue to develop our position as a partner of choice for biopharma, product development partnerships (PDPs) and academic investigators by delivering high-quality preclinical data packages and de-risking novel drug targets for diseases of unmet medical need.
Some of our key achievements to date:
candidate drugs in clinical development
invested to date
licensed assets to BioPharma companies
