FOR IMMEDIATE DISTRIBUTION
MedChem Partners LLC and SBH Sciences have teamed up to offer an integrated solution for drug discovery
(Lexington, MA, and Natick, MA) August 2, 2022.
MedChem Partners LLC and SBH Sciences announced today a scientific collaboration focused on a tighter integration between MedChem Partners’ chemistry capabilities and SBH’s biology and assay technologies. SBH sciences has been a leader in biology for 24 years and provides services in the area of biomarkers, cell-based assays and cell culture, gene therapy, drug discovery, protein production and purification, and in vitro assay development and screening. MedChem Partners has been providing high level chemistry services for 17 years, and has expertise in synthetic and medicinal chemistry, conjugation chemistry, stable label isotope and reference standard preparation, pre-formulation and lipid chemistry, program planning and NewCo formation.
The current collaboration is designed to bring both companies platforms into alignment, allowing for the Integration of chemistry and biology to streamline discovery, screening, and medicinal chemistry. By removing the barriers between chemistry and biology, the current collaboration will allow for the free flow of information in discovery and development programs, accelerating the pace at which these programs can progress. In addition, rather than a “hand off” between chemistry and biology, the current collaboration will allow a smooth transition where institutional knowledge is passed on rather than lost.
"The power in this collaboration is that we both focus on our area of expertise: SBH has a very broad and deep understanding of biology, whereas we have decades of expertise in a variety of chemistries. Together we can leverage the knowledge base of each other to provide a lot of juice to jumpstart discovery and development programs" —Steven Riesinger, CEO, MedChem Partners
