MerLion Pharmaceuticals Pte Ltd Company Profile

08:07 EDT 20th March 2018 | BioPortfolio

MerLion Pharmaceuticals is a Singapore-based, privately held company, engaged in drug discovery from natural products. Its assets include one of the World's largest and most diverse natural product collections, proprietary purification technologies, high throughput screening (HTS) capabilities, proprietary IT database management systems and a highly experienced team. Our business focus is on discrete R & D collaborations with pharmaceutical companies, biotechs and other research organisations possessing novel, validated targets in key therapeutic areas.
MerLion Pharmaceuticals Pte Ltd was formed in 2002 through the privatisation of the former Centre for Natural Product Research (CNPR), a unique unit of Singapore's Institute of Molecular and Cell Biology (IMCB). Funded in part by former-Glaxo and the Economic Development Board of Singapore, CNPR was established in 1993 to screen natural product samples in the search for new pharmaceutical leads. From 1993 to 2002, CNPR established first class lead discovery capabilities, undertaking high throughput screens in a wide range of formats and discovering a vast array of active compounds, many completely new to science. MerLion Pharma has inherited all assets of CNPR, including all key staff, an impressive collection of natural product samples, as well as a portfolio of promising lead compounds in a range of therapeutic areas. MerLion Pharma has since acquired additional natural product libraries and, together with MerLion's legacy libraries, they represent a collection unparalleled in geographic and taxonomic diversity, giving the Company a significant competitive edge in this field of drug discovery.
