ChemAxon will provide the core tools to support the pan European initiative.

ChemAxon and the European Lead Factory have announced that ChemAxon will provide the core tools and leads the development of the informatics platform to support the pan European initiative.

ChemAxon will be building a portal to support the crowd-sourcing initiative using its core JChem Base and Marvin components.

The scientific decision process involved in selecting the right proposals from those submitted will be supported by ChemAxon’s Discovery Toolkit, including various fingerprints and physico-chemical property predictors.

The portal will also offer a way for submitters to keep track of their submission’s status and for the consortium’s selection committee to score and analyze submitted proposals.

The Innovative Medicines Initiative (IMI), the world’s largest public-private initiative in the field of pharmaceutical research aims to create a new and unique collaboration of public and private sector.

The research program of up to EUR196 million and named the European Lead Factory, involving small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs), academic institutions and large pharmaceutical companies, aims to improve the competitiveness of the European pharmaceutical industry, accelerate the drug development process, and strives to develop safer, more effective drugs.

The European Lead Factory was launched by an international consortium of 30 partners, with the only Hungarian participant being ChemAxon Ltd. This partnership, the first of its kind, is supported by the Innovative Medicines Initiative (IMI) and creates unprecedented opportunities for the discovery of new medicines through access to a collection of small molecules contributed by pharmaceutical companies, and a newly synthesized compound collection built by the SMEs and academic institutions.

As a result of this partnership, the new compound library consisting of up to half a million compounds will be accessible to all project partners and to public organizations.

Screening of this compound collection will be performed within the pharmaceutical companies and by a newly established European Screening Centre, which will run state of the art facilities in Scotland and the Netherlands to handle logistics and screening of compound libraries.

If the project proves successful during its initial five year funding period, the partnership aims for a sustainable role in drug discovery in Europe.
