News Oct 10, 2012
NovAliX has announced that it has entered into drug discovery collaboration with the pharmaceutical company Servier.
NovAliX will identify hits using its Graffinity fragment-based screening technology that combines chemical micro-arrays with a proprietary SPR-imaging method for the detection of compound protein interactions.
NovAliX will receive technology access fees and research funding from Servier.
"We look forward to utilizing NovAliX's strong capabilities in biophysics and lead generation methodologies for this novel discovery program" said Bernard Marchand, PhD, Head of Servier Discovery Research.
Stephan Jenn, President of NovAliX, said "This drug discovery collaboration with a leading global pharmaceutical confirms the quality of our technologies and science, and underlines the value of our platform as an important tool to deliver valuable lead candidates."
University of Wisconsin–Madison Professor of Chemistry Shannon Stahl has received the Steenbock Professorship in Chemical Sciences. In addition to advancing the fundamental science in this area, Stahl has been involved in numerous industrial collaborations that have led to practical applications, including target applications relevant to pharmaceutical synthesis.READ MORE
