University of Leeds – Medicinal Chemistry and Chemical Biology Technology Group

The MCCB group provides a comprehensive and integrated medicinal chemistry, high-throughput screening, and molecular modelling capability for the identification of novel small molecule therapeutics and probes. A primary aim of the group is to pump-prime projects via the provision of suitable resources such that projects are suitable to go forward for major external grant funding involving the MCCB group as a collaborator.
