Parkinson’s disease: Servier and Oncodesign announce the selection of a preclinical candidate
Initiated in March 2019, this Research and Development partnership is focused on the identification of LRRK2 kinase inhibitors derived from Oncodesign’s proprietary Nanocyclix® platform and their potential to act as therapeutic agents against Parkinson’s disease, drawing on Servier and Oncodesign’s complementary expertise in the field of neurodegenerative disease and kinase inhibitors.
Outsourcing drug discovery has become an overwhelmingly accepted approaches across the pharmaceutical industry from virtual biotech to large pharmaceutical companies as part of the globalization process. It does represent a cost-effective opportunity to access specialized technologies and expert scientist resources having a broad knowledge of pharmaceutical drug discovery development. Oncodesign’s objective with DRIVE™ offer is to provide its customers with the best possible options and state-of-the-art technologies to progress their drug discovery in the shortest possible time with the highest quality. Oncodesign is doing so by setting up under a single leadership, privileged partnering with selected and trusted companies sharing the same values of innovation and quality as its own. Hits finding and validation are important phases in early drug discovery. With Program, Oncodesign is providing DNA encoded libraries, fragments screening along with Hit validation using NanoDSF, MST, SPR, ITC and Structural Biology (Cryo-EM and X-Ray crystallography) supported by artificial intelligence.
Key learning objectives
Introduction to a solution provider from hits finding to IND filing
Advantages of drug discovery integrated provider vs silos approach
Special focus on Hit identification and validation across DNA encoded libraries, Artificial Intelligence, Biophsysics and Biostructures
