BioFocus/InterMed agree collaboration

The UK drug discovery company, BioFocus (Saffron Walden, Essex), and the German natural product lead-discovery company, Intermed Discovery (IMD - Dortmund), have agreed a marketing collaboration to offer enhanced natural product discovery to the agrochemical industry, among others. IMD will make its natural product screening libraries available to BioFocus and provide follow-on services. BioFocus will then incorporate these as part of its own integrated drug discovery offerings. “We believe that the combination of our natural product capabilities with the well known discovery capabilities of BioFocus will offer a powerful discovery solution at a time when there is already growing demand from the pharma, veterinary and agro industries to fill depleted pipelines,” says IMD co-managing director Dr Thomas Henkel. No financial details have been disclosed.
