Distributed Facility For Fragment Based Drug Discovery

Grant number: LE160100047 | Funding period: 2016 - 2016



The facility aims to provide researchers with the ability to generate small molecules that modulate therapeutically and biologically important protein targets. Fragment-based drug design (FBDD) provides a rational approach to generate such biologically active compounds. The facility is designed to allow researchers throughout Australia to access the necessary infrastructure to undertake FBDD projects against a range of biologically important targets. The facility aims to enable access to high-throughput nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy and surface plasmon resonance, and to generate the capacity for automation in chemical synthesis and sample preparation to expedite the development of ..
