Select a sector for details


We are responsible for lead compound discovery and optimization. This sector:

  • Identifies and validates signal and molecular targets
  • Develops screening technologies
  • Performs high-throughput screening (HTS) leveraging technologies
  • Participates in joint studies on targets known to have high target-disease correlation
  • Investigates the efficacy and safety of lead compounds

The medicinal chemistry sector of SK Life Science, Inc. (SKLSI) is responsible for:

  • Identifying a wide array of drug candidates for CNS disorders
  • Optimizing lead compounds in terms of their structure-activity relationships
  • Developing processes for clinical candidates to lead compound discovery and optimization

To maximize efficiency, we have implemented a CADD system, a high-efficiency synthesis infrastructure, an established structure-diverse library, and a target focus library.

The pharmacology sector is responsible for research programs in which drug candidates are studied to enable prediction of drug activity in the human body.
