Long description
Fundación MEDINA is a non-profit public–private partnership between Merck Sharp and Dohme de España S.A., the Junta de Andalucía and the University of Granada, to discover innovative compounds and therapies for unmet medical needs.
Created in November 2008, MEDINA gathers all the assets and know how from CIBE, the Merck Basic Research Center in Madrid with more than 50 years experience in drug discovery from natural products and a Reference Center for the evaluation of drug candidates.
Leveraging the expertise and technology of the MSD scientific team transferred from CIBE, the research activities at MEDINA are focused on two different areas that clearly respond to a dual business model:
- the discovery of new leads from the 100.000 microbial natural products collection in therapeutic areas identified as top priority by the national and regional Spanish Health Systems.
- a high throughput screening platform for the evaluation of potential cardiovascular toxicities and adverse drug metabolism effects (ADME/TOX) of drug candidates in development.
MEDINA mission is focused on the discovery of innovative compounds and therapies, that could be offered as new leads for development by industrial companies.
- MEDINA develops R&D projects from in-house research or from collaborations mainly focused on infectious diseases, cancer and immunomodulation.
- MEDINA offers 1) natural products screening services for lead discovery on therapeutic targets developed by the customers and 2) compound profiling services for their drug candidates, using a counterscreening panel designed to determine potential risks in cardiovascular safety and drug-drug interactions
