Cambridge Drug Discovery Company Profile

01:50 EDT 23rd September 2017 | BioPortfolio

Cambridge Drug Discovery, CDD, focus on the discovery of small molecules that modify cellular signalling. We are developing new assay methodologies for ion channels, GPCRs and kinases targets, including the application of our proprietary retroviral technology to develop new screening systems. Our expanding library collection of quality, diverse compounds (currently 100,000) and automated HTS system enables us to offer an integrated gene to screen service. Underpinning our gene to screen efforts is CDD's proprietary database, TargetBASE™ that encompasses bioinformatics and cheminformatics to integrate target and screening data. TargetBASE™ is a unique standalone product that is readily accessible for customised target analysis and selection.

CDD currently have 42 staff, including over 25 post-doctoral industrially trained scientists. Our purpose-built laboratories cover 12,000 sq ft and are located along side our administration building, on the Cambridge Science Park, Cambridge, UK.

CDD's core business is to provide drug discovery services and access to its technology portfolio through strategic outsourcing initiatives with biotech and pharmaceutical companies. Our internal R&D programme is focused on validating new technologies and identifying hit compounds from the CDD compound collection, for subsequent partnering programs. We expect to be in a position to partner lead compounds at the end of this year.
