BioFocus DPI Takes Global License for Cresset’s Molecular Field Software
News Mar 24, 2008
BioFocus DPI and Cresset BioMolecular Discovery have announced that BioFocus DPI has up-graded its software license with Cresset to provide global access to the entire range of Cresset’s molecular field software for use in drug discovery.
BioFocus DPI and Cresset have been working together for two years on the design and synthesis of BioFocus DPI’s FieldFocus™ libraries, focused libraries for ion channel drug discovery. The success of these libraries in generating hit series validates Cresset’s approach and its use in the design of novel biologically focused libraries.
The new license also extends BioFocus DPI’s coverage to include its parent company, Galapagos. BioFocus DPI and Galapagos will now have the facility to apply molecular field technology to their projects, whether internal research, library design or drug discovery projects for clients.
Beatrice Leigh, CEO of Cresset, commented ‘We have built a close working relationship with BioFocus DPI over the last two years and have a great respect for each other’s technologies and skills. We are delighted to further cement this relationship with the lease of the entire range of Cresset’s software to BioFocus DPI and its parent company, Galapagos.’
“The FieldFocus libraries we have developed using Cresset’s molecular field software have been particularly successful in identifying novel hit-series for ligand-gated ion channels. We are pleased to continue applying Cresset’s technology to develop new FieldFocus libraries and to further contribute to our clients’ medicinal chemistry projects,” said Chris Newton, Senior Vice President of BioFocus DPI.
New Chemical Synthesis Process: Synergy of Two Catalysts in One FlaskNews
Researchers report the one-step synthesis of a ketone from an aldehyde by the combination of thiazolium N-heterocyclic carbene and palladium/bisphosphine catalysts in one flask. The two catalysts function in a synergistic manner. This study is expected to lead to new synthesis processes of precursor compounds for medications.READ MORE
