End of year message from CEO

2013 has been an exciting year for Cresset. From product releases to global events, including a recent trip to China. Dr. Robert Scoffin looks back over the year.

Can you put fields onto a protein?

This is the question we are asked most often, but to achieve this we need to handle formally charged groups. Dr. Mark Mackey, Cresset’s CSO, describes our approach.

We aim to achieve a good balance between the provision of powerful science and making that science readily accessible and easily understandable. Is this a difficult act to balance?

Identifying new indications for existing drugs
