Research never stops

Shire/Not disclosed

In May 2014, Evotec entered into a new drug discovery collaboration with Shire to develop novel small molecule inhibitors against a target to treat Fabry’s disease, an inherited lysosomal storage disease. As part of the collaboration, Evotec will apply many facets of its world-leading drug discovery engine including high-throughput screening, fragment-based screening, computational chemistry and structure-based medicinal chemistry to address both hit identification and then lead optimisation. The term of the collaboration will be three years. Financial details are not being disclosed.
