Albany Molecular Research Inc. has announced that it has signed a collaboration agreement with biotechnology company Multispan Inc. to co-market their G protein-coupled receptor (GPCR) drug discovery services to global pharmaceutical and biotechnology clients.

As part of the three-year agreement, AMRI gains access to Multispan's uniquely differentiated GPCR cell lines, assay capabilities and expertise. Multispan's customers will benefit from AMRI's global integrated drug discovery solutions, including high-throughput screening (HTS) and discovery medicinal chemistry.

"We are excited to be entering into this collaboration with Multispan as we implement our new U.S. integrated drug discovery center located on the Buffalo Niagara Medical Campus," said Rory Curtis, Ph.D., Vice President, Discovery Biology and Pharmacology, and Site Head of AMRI Buffalo. "As a biotechnology company that exclusively focuses on drug discovery research targeting GPCRs, Multispan has an impressive collection of human GPCR clones and GPCR-expressing cell lines for HTS, which will be beneficial to AMRI's integrated drug discovery efforts."

Aimed at increasing success in GPCR drug discovery, the alliance with Multispan is an example of the local and national partnerships AMRI is creating to combine validated assays and technologies with its HTS and analytic informatics.

"We have a responsibility to our partners and customers to use the best assays available to improve GPCR drug discovery, drive reductions in discovery cycle time and yield compounds that will ultimately be successful in the clinic," Dr. Curtis continued. "Our strategy is to leverage and build creative and effective collaborations with on-campus and off-campus partners from academia, biotech and Pharma."

"We are excited to bring our GPCR capabilities and services to AMRI's customers through this strategic alliance," added Helena Mancebo, CEO of Multispan. "In addition, we are eager for our customers to have access to the leading-edge capabilities for drug discovery that AMRI's new center in Buffalo offers across biology and medicinal chemistry."
