The Leicester Institute of Structural and Chemical Biology (LISCB) have long-standing success in collaborating with industry in the field of drug discovery. They combine their technical capabilities in structure-based drug discovery to identify novel targets and have built expertise in chemical biology to develop next generation chemical platforms and probes.
LISCB host a regular academic-industry exchange event called Bench to Business at the Henry Wellcome Building in Leicester. This year, they created imaginative films “introductions” to some of their academics, representing the range of expertise and project types from across the institute.
LISCB hope those working in the pharmaceutical industry in drug discovery will take 3 minutes to watch these films and contact us for a further conversation to explore potential collaboration.
The six shorts, taken from across the Institute, show scientists outlining their work on either a novel target – including validation, assay development, structural insights and ligand discovery; or development of novel chemical entities with proof of concept against exemplar targets.
