DRIVE-IDDS is a complete continuum of discovery, from target to clinical candidate, for:

  • new chemical entitiesDRIVE-Small Molecule
  • Targeted radiopharmaceutical products DRIVE-MRT

DRIVE-Small Molecule brings together the right skills, expertise and discovery platforms to design and deliver new clinical chemical entities in therapeutic areas such as oncology, immuno-oncology, and immuno-inflammation

  • A simpler set-up with several possible choices to quickly identify and validate new promising chemical series (hits) – thanks to our technologies and those developed by our strategic partners, HitGen, 2Bind, Icaria et Iktos.
  • Multi-disciplinary teams with expertise in medicinal chemistry, in vitro and in vivo pharmacology, and DMPK/Bioanalysis, as well as experience in the discovery process, to streamline the time frames and multi-parameter optimization cycles of the Hit-to-Lead, Lead Optimisation and pre-clinical candidate selection until submission of the IND.
  • DRIVE-Small Molecule, a way to drastically speed up your new chemical entities.

DRIVE-Molecular RadioTherapy  encompasses all the skills, experience and technological platforms needed to generate new targeted radiopharmaceutical products in clinical oncology.

  • Oncodesign and its strategic partners Covalab, CheMatech and ABX-CRO mobilize all their expertise to streamline, design and optimize targeted and effective radiopharmaceutical agents against specific cancers, to demonstrate the preclinical proof of concept, safety margin and guidance for a clinical development path.

The advantages of the DRIVE offer
