AccelBio is a collaborative laboratory that aims to be the bridge that brings biomedical science closer to the market. With a set of partners that cover all the necessary capacities and expertise to drive drug discovery, AccelBio selects fundamental research discoveries and cutting-edge technology platforms and tools and guides the transformation of breakthrough science into validated and investment-worthy assets. AccelBio complements academic research groups and start-ups with industry-standard drug discovery capabilities - target validation, assay development, high-throughput screening, in silico modelling, medicinal chemistry, in vitro and in vivo testing, IP support and business development. Innovative platforms are also being developed within a well-defined R&I agenda that will further boost drug discovery. By providing these capacities and specialized expertise, AccelBio will de-risk drug discovery assets until they are ready to be out-licensed to industry or established as the foundation of new spin-off companies.
