Spring 2014 Newsletter


Welcome to our Spring 2014 newsletter – a special edition as we have just celebrated our 10th birthday!   To mark the occasion we invited our social media followers to enter a prize draw to win a Kindle Fire HD.  Read on below to hear about our winner.

In this edition we also feature an article on the changing face of drug discovery over the past decade (indeed – it may be even more different in the coming days if the news reports are accurate!), we share details of our new interim staffing service which is already proving popular, and we introduce a new structural biology/crystallographic service from experienced UK-based experts who would like to pilot this new service offering.

Through our collaboration with Cresset we have developed some field-based pharmacophore models against PPI targets of interest.  These can be used to identify compounds to screen against these targets, or, of course, we can build custom models for other targets of interest to clients.

Our directory of medicinal chemistry consultants continues to grow.  If you are a medicinal chemistry consultant and would like to be included in this section of our website, do get in touch.

Finally, we’ve listed some upcoming meetings and job openings which may be of interest to our readers.

Do check out our website and social media channels (LinkedIn, Facebook & Twitter) for more updates from CompChem Solutions.

Winter 2013 Newsletter


Welcome to our Winter 2013 newsletter.

Firstly, we would like to introduce our new website, which has been updated to reflect the changing face of pharmaceutical research, with the growth of open innovation, translational medicine and the increasing activity of academic and charitable institutions in all areas of drug discovery.   The site contains much more information on how CompChem Solutions can work with various types of organisations.

We have collaborated on many projects with medicinal chemists, leading to successful achievement of project milestones and to successful grant funding.  To help establish similarly valuable joint collaborations we have created an area of the website which has links to medicinal chemistry consultants who may be able to add value to your projects.
