Chemical Probes for Open Science:

Chemical Probes for Open Science

Bayer has joined forces with world-class academic institutions and other pharma companies as part of the Structural Genomics Consortium (SGC): In an Open Science effort we identify chemical probes for novel drug discovery targets and make them openly available for academic labs. They are able to use these probes without any restrictions to study the disease relevance of such novel targets. This joint effort is for the benefit of patients as high quality science forms the basis for the next generation of therapeutics.


Who this is for

  • Academia
  • Research institutes

What it’s about
