I am a highly experienced medicinal chemist who can provide input into leveraging your early research to screen for tools to validate targets and provide high quality, intelligent, innovative input into all stages of drug discovery from target selection, HTS, hit generation, lead optimisation and candidate selection. I also offer competitive intelligence evaluation and assistance with drafting patent applications.
I have worked in the pharmaceutical industry for 17 years and have led global and local multi-disciplinary teams through collaboration to deliver preclinical candidates. My research therapeutic areas have included CNS and oncology and targets such as GPCRs and enzymes such as kinases.
I have worked on targets where structural information generated through crystallisation allows rational drug design and on novel targets where close collaboration with in vitro/in vivo pharmacology is required to drive drug design.
Having worked in a new start-up company, a small biotech and mid to large pharmaceutical companies and I understand the changing environment, budget and deliverables within a diverse drug discovery backdrop.
