MediChem is a drug discovery technology and services company that offers a broad range of integrated chemistry R&D capabilities to pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies. Recent advances in genomics have resulted in exponential growth in the number of biological targets that could be exploited for new drug discovery. This creates a significant gap between new drug target identification and the development of novel drug compounds. MediChem bridges this gap by offering early stage discovery technologies and services in proteomics and medicinal chemistry and extends the process through our integrated chemistry development services through the drug development pipeline. We provide drug discovery technology and services in the following areas:

  • Proteomics
  • Combinatorial and Computational Chemistry
  • Medicinal Chemistry
  • Biocatalysis
  • Chemical Process Development
  • Analytical and Separations Chemistry
  • Chemical Synthesis and Scale Up

Our technology and services are designed to enable our pharmaceutical and biotechnology customers to reduce overall development time and cost and to pursue, simultaneously, a greater number of discovery and development opportunities. Founded in 1987, we believe we were the first independent chemistry company to offer a broad array of discovery-related medicinal chemistry services to pharmaceutical and biotechnology customers.
