Partnering opportunity

Small molecule hit and lead compounds for most indications

Summary

An international chemistry contract research organisation has built an extensive skillset in synthetic and medicinal chemistry. They are looking for new hit and lead compounds that they could advance into a robust clinical candidate, with desired properties agreed upon. They would share in the eventual commercial return but not the IP. There is little limit in terms of indication areas. Drug discovery businesses & research groups are sought for joint ventures or technical cooperation.

Technical Specification or Expertise Sought

What is sought is promising hit and lead compounds that are currently sub-optimal, with regards to their selectivity or specificity, or availability.

Partner sought

Type of partner sought: industry and academia; - Type of activity of the partner: drug discovery and optimisation; - Task to be performed by the partner sought: to provide non-confidential information on high priority projects and the type of collaboration envisaged. Mostly, joint ventures and technical cooperation are sought around early stage small compounds. First, desired technical and commercial goals will be set followed by a detailed description of the involvement of either party.

Description

An international chemistry contract research organisation has built an extensive skillset in synthetic and medicinal chemistry. At the same time, they have built a good customer base in the Pharma industry. The company has identified 5 robust candidates for clinical trials for their clients over the past 3 years. They are interested in early stage small compounds that would benefit from optimisation or synthesis as a chemical or medicinal chemistry project. The idea is to explore dual contribution/dual return type projects. The parties will agree on a goal in terms of the desired potency etc that would be attractive for the Pharma industry. The chemistry company would contribute significantly towards the development of a robust compound with the agreed attributes and later share any commercial returns. At the same time they will not make any claims on the IP generated. The company has worked in practically all indication areas so that is not a limitation. They would also consider a grant-funded project. Mostly, joint ventures and technical cooperation are sought around early stage small compounds. First, desired technical and commercial goals will be set followed by a detailed description of the involvement of either party.

How it works

  • Tell us about yourself
  • We’ll discuss with you
  • We put the right partners in touch

EEN help you find the right partner, rather than you going it alone.

Our role is to review and collate the most suitable submissions, and then send them to the client who posted the opportunity. We consult with you, and the client, to make the process professional and easy.

These are live opportunities. Your registration of interest on the site is just like a professional approach to a business at a networking event. To stand the best chance of success, make your submission really sing. Sell why the client who posted the opportunity should work with you. Excite them. Ask questions. Try and avoid copy and pasting words from elsewhere.

Once the client has chosen their partner, we'll introduce them over email and keep in touch with both parties to see how it's going. Sometimes things progress quickly. Sometimes because of changing priorities for either party, things progress slowly, but you never know - your next big business break could start right here.
