Drug Discovery Services

  • Medicinal Chemistry

  • Non-GMP-Kilo-Lab
  • Analytical Support Services

Drug Discovery Process

Our delivery model has a proven track record of providing a step change in the effectiveness of drug discovery for a range of global pharmaceuticals and biotechnology companies operating at the forefront of drug discovery. We understand that early and intensive evaluation of the molecules based on thorough communications and rapid decision-making will lead to a high throughput of successful drug-like compounds. The model has been designed for speed and revolves around effective project management, processes/equipment and people. The effectiveness of the operations in India is boosted by the UK project office (Cambridge) which provides logistical, communications and objective project management support.

Full Service Lab Units

Each lab unit is spacious with 12 fume-hoods and an accompanying write-up area along with an integrated engineering and central services support. The modularity of this design enables us to customise client-experience.

IP/IT Security

At Piramal, we understand the responsibility to protect the IP of clients. Our IP security model is designed to protect IP during the project lifecycle and beyond. Key steps taken in this regard are:

  • CDA signed with all employees (if required CDA’s can be executed directly between clients and project teams at Piramal)
  • Upfront patent assignment on MSA’s
  • Mandatory Checks to ensure adherence to IP Process

Starting Materials & Supply Chain

Prompt delivery of starting materials is crucial to a fast start of a project and the key to our high speed delivery. We have a dedicated procurement team that works with qualified suppliers, both locally and internationally, to ensure faster procurement timelines. It also works to our advantage that our Discovery Services site is located in a Special Economic Zone (SEZ), which enables faster custom clearance of our materials.
