discovery chemistry


Medicinal chemistry is an interdisciplinary science, which encompasses synthetic organic chemistry and aspects of natural products and computational chemistry, in close combination with chemical biology, enzymology and structural biology, together aiming at the discovery and development of new therapeutic agents. This field of drug discovery involves chemical aspects of identification, and then systematic, thorough synthetic alteration of new chemical entities to make them suitable for therapeutic use.

Selvita's teams of computational, discovery and medicinal chemists have expertise in organic chemistry, together with a broad understanding of biological concepts related to cellular drug targets, toxicology and pharmacology. Our specialists invent novel synthetic chemical libraries, chemical compound collections or libraries created through combinatorial chemistry, displaying suitable structure-activity relationships and characteristics associated with long-term potential for development.
