The group also provides high quality, fast-paced drug discovery and bench-level synthesis of organic compounds to global clients. The co-location on site of GlycoSyn seamlessly transitions our bench-level chemistry to multi-kilogram synthesis and cGMP manufacture of drugs for human clinical trials. 

Our expertise ranges from natural product isolation, characterisation of complex carbohydrate structures, chemical synthesis, and drug development to glycol-immunology insights and more.
