NCE discovery research Build your discovery pipeline with valuable IP
We help clients in augmenting their candidate pipeline discovering New Chemical Entities and New Biological Entities for their intended purpose. VLife has significant track record in discovery research serving the requirements of variety of industry sectors including pharmaceutical/ chemical/ health and beauty care/ food and nutraceutical.
Depending on the project mandate, we cover the entire workflow to convert an idea into valuable intellectual property e.g. we cover the following work-flow for the pharmaceutical sector, with the scope of engagement with client covering some or all of the following steps:
Computational discovery research
Library generation and virtual screening
Activity/ ADMET profiling of screened candidates
Novelty search and provisional patent filing
Chemical synthesis of short-listed molecules
In-vitro testing and lead optimization
Full application filing under PCT
Assignment of the filed patent to the client
The steps 1 - 6 happen on iterative basis where the findings of the in-vitro results are used for lead optimization. Connect with VLife Expert to know more about VLife's NCE research services and how VLife can create intellectual property for you.
