University of Dundee – Drug Discovery Unit

Tackling unmet medical need through small molecule drug discovery

The University of Dundee Drug Discovery Unit is a fully operational, fully integrated drug discovery group working across multiple disease areas. They collaborate with partners to translate world-class biology research into novel drug targets and candidate drugs to address unmet medical need across our two areas of activity, Diseases of the Developing World and Innovative Targets Portfolio.

We act as a trusted mutual broker between Antimicrobial Discovery Solutions (ADS) Ltd and the University of Dundee to create a neutral space for the partners to explore potential new antimicrobial drug discovery. This agreement enables the University of Dundee Drug Discovery Unit to provide its unique chemistry for testing in ADS’s unique assays in a ‘double-blind’ manner where only the neutral Catapult is aware of which chemistry is active.
