22 September 2017

Having discovered an interesting protein involved in depression and pain, Dr Patrick McHugh, University of Huddersfield, wanted to access chemical tools to further explore its role and action.

He contacted Taros Chemicals for their chemistry expertise and Pivot Park Screening Centre to explore the possibilities of developing an assay. In a collaborative effort, they successfully created a drug discovery programme fulfilling the European Lead Factory standard. The outcome of the screen is promising. Exciting hits were found that will be further explored by the programme partners.
