Almac Discovery is a research driven drug discovery company dedicated to the development of novel and innovative approaches to the treatment of diseases of unmet need (including oncology and CNS), by applying a target class approach. The Almac Discovery business model is to develop preclinical stage assets which are then licenced to pharmaceutical or biotech partners for further development. We also look to collaborate with partners to apply our medicinal chemistry and translational biology expertise to targets of mutual interest. Key research themes include deubiquitinase enzymes and protein drug conjugates.
Sygnature Discovery is a leading independent integrated drug discovery and pre-clinical services CRO. Founded in 2004 and private equity-backed since 2017, we operate a fully-enabled research facility in Nottingham, UK, housing nearly 400 staff (80% of our scientists have PhDs). Our experienced R&D scientists possess all the professional skills and know-how required to undertake the most demanding of drug discovery and/or pre-clinical development projects and drive them from target validation, through hit identification, hit-to-lead and lead optimization to development candidate. Sygnature collaborates with its partners via risk share and FTE-based collaborations.
