Welcome Message from Steve Yang

Welcome to the inaugural IDSU newsletter!

As the new head of the International Discovery Services Unit (IDSU), I am proud to introduce our quarterly newsletter, bringing you the latest in medicinal chemistry and small molecule news, research, and events.

For over a decade, WuXi AppTec has built an open access capability and technology platform with a broad and integrated portfolio of services throughout the drug R&D process to enable more efficient and cost-effective research that delivers innovative medicines and treatments to patients.

IDSU is a global synthetic and medicinal chemistry solutions platform that fosters strong collaboration between pharmaceutical and biotech companies, research institutes, and innovation hubs to provide comprehensive solutions to drug discovery challenges in our industry. Our global team leverages their peer-recognized chemistry and medchem expertise and WuXi’s best-in-class fully integrated drug discovery and development platform to seamlessly progress programs from target through to preclinical candidate selection and beyond. Over the last several years, IDSU’s integrated discovery platform delivered more than 20 PCCs (Preclinical Candidates). In 2014, IDSU’s medicinal chemistry support delivered over 70,000 compounds to 100+ clients worldwide. 

We hope to continue this growth and further engage with the clients and life science communities we serve.

In the spirit of growth and collaboration, we hope you find value in this community newsletter.
