The LAB282 funding scheme is currently seeking innovative proposals for its September round of funding where successful applications will be awarded with project financing of up to £500K.

The current call is open to all investigators with an affection towards drug discovery and interest in translating their novel therapeutic concepts and findings towards a clinical application with the potential to participate in the generation of a new university spin-out.

Particular areas of activities include but are not exclusive to the following areas:

  • Hit identification via HTS and phenotypic screening
  • Computational chemistry
  • In vivo POC around the target of interest
  • Medicinal chemistry optimization of existing chemical matter for in vivo studies
  • Proteomics and metabolomics
  • Antibody generation and characterization

Along with a high rate of funding awards, successful applicants will benefit from an efficient and light-touch application process, a quick feedback process and access to seasoned drug discovery expertise and capabilities of more than 2000 scientists at Evotec.

The deadline for proposal submission is August 8th and following proposal submission, all applicants are invited to hold a presentation around their ideas of approximately 20 minutes to the selection committee in Oxford on September 6th. Feedback is typically provided one day later.
