About us

Cresset was formed in 2002 by Dr Andy Vinter. His ground breaking research on new virtual screening technology for drug discovery formed the scientific foundation of the company and has underpinned our technical development ever since. Andy continues to work alongside our leadership team and R&D team to innovate and extend the scientific base of the company, inspiring us as we grow.

Today Cresset delivers software and discovery research services that help chemists discover, design and optimize the best small molecules for their project.

We are proud of our science and we are proud of our people. Together, we create outstanding solutions to the highest scientific standards. Our customers trust us to deliver the best possible results for their work.
