The identification of high quality, innovative small molecule leads remains a challenge in drug discovery. Innovative compound libraries are crucial in order to address the challenges associated with discovering new drugs. The chemical space to be sampled in drug discovery programs is vast and sparsely populated by existing compound collections. Therefore significant efforts and resources need to be invested in the generation and maintenance of competitive compound collections.
In this webinar, characteristics of a high-quality compound screening collection will be presented. AMRI’s approach to synthesizing compound screening collections is addressing this challenge by leveraging AMRI’s synthetic and medicinal chemistry expertise. This webinar will discuss AMRI’s cost-effective approach to the creation of high-value screening compounds.
