Galapagos NV has announced that is has signed a drug discovery research agreement with UCL (University College London). Galapagos' BioFocus DPI service division will perform medicinal chemistry services for a UCL research project.

It is also intended that BioFocus DPI will offer UCL ADME screening facilities during the appropriate stages of the work. Total contract value for Galapagos is expected to reach more than €1.8 million over the course of the two-year agreement.

UCL has an ongoing drug discovery program for the treatment of vascular collapse during sepsis (collapsing of blood vessels due to systemic infection by a pathogen).

BioFocus DPI will provide medicinal chemistry services to progress UCL's lead series through to pre-clinical testing.

In addition UCL will also have the opportunity to utilize BioFocus DPI ADME screening services and will receive access to a selection of compounds in BioFocus DPI's SoftFocus collection to facilitate the identification of new chemical starting points for this drug discovery program.

"We are pleased to add UCL to BioFocus DPI's considerable list of academic partners," said Onno van de Stolpe, CEO of Galapagos. "BioFocus DPI's leading medicinal chemistry and ADME expertise, such as the newly launched ADME/PK Laboratory, give us a strong edge in winning highly competitive deals."
