Proximagen enhances medicinal chemists’ toolkit with Flare for structure-based design

Cambridge, UK – 12 December 2017 – Cresset, innovative provider of software and contract research services for small molecule discovery and design, is pleased to announce that Proximagen, a drug discovery and development company, has licensed Flare.

“Flare will give our medicinal chemistry team rapid, hands-on access to structure-based design capabilities” says Dr Ed Savory, Head of Exploratory Research, Proximagen. “When combined with our use of Cresset’s Forge for SAR and design, and Spark for R-group exploration and scaffold hopping, our medicinal chemists have access to a wide range of easy to use modelling applications.”

“I’m delighted that Proximagen have chosen to enhance their toolkit by making Flare accessible to their medicinal chemists,” says Dr Tim Cheeseright, Director of Products, Cresset. “I’m confident that Flare will bring fresh insights into their protein-ligand analysis and design.”
