Activity-directed synthesis toolkit

Lead Research Organisation: University of Leeds
Department Name: Sch of Chemistry


Activity-directed synthesis (ADS) is a novel discovery approach in which bioactive small molecules emerge in parallel with an associated synthetic route. This iCASE project (in collaboration with GSK) will focus on expansion of the reaction toolkit for ADS to enable scaffold hopping. The new chemical tools will be exploited in the ADS of small molecule modulators of exemplar protein targets.
