in silico Drug Discovery
Tools & Technologies
Icagen made a significant commitment into in silico drug discovery with its July 2016 acquisition of Sanofi’s facility in Tucson, Arizona. Alongside integration of another deeply experienced team of scientists, we acquired one of the market’s most significant high-performance computational suites for in silico drug discovery. However, the acquisition of advanced software suites and massive computing capabilities are available to anyone with resources they are willing to invest. What makes the real difference is experience.
Icagen has almost 25 years of experience in drug discovery and now we are bringing in silico approaches to our existing platform, greatly reducing the time it takes to identify and optimize drug candidates. Within an Icagen Integrated Discovery Project we seek to accomplish this within 18 -24 months. The scientists at Tucson have long tenure as a collaborative group and a very high level of collective expertise with in silico drug discovery, which positions Icagen as a Target-to-Lead generation company at a time when there is a significant gap in the market for quality leads.
