Pharmaron Joins NCI’s Chemical Biology Consortium to Fight Against Cancer

Irvine, California, June 14, 2016 – Pharmaron, a fully integrated contract research organization (CRO) offering laboratory and manufacturing services for pharmaceutical and biotech research and development, has joined a national network of scientists on the leading edge of drug discovery and development in the fight against cancer, centered at the Frederick National Laboratory for Cancer Research.

The Frederick National Lab, sponsored by the National Cancer Institute, is managing the expansion of the Chemical Biology Consortium to 22 sites around the country with world-class expertise in high-throughput screening, structural biology, medicinal chemistry, compound profiling, cancer cell biology, and animal models for oncology. Pharmaron will participate in the consortium via a research subcontract from Leidos Biomedical Research, Inc., prime contractor for the national lab.

The Chemical Biology Consortium is the discovery engine for the NCI Experimental Therapeutics (NExT) Program. The CBC is a consortium designed to facilitate the discovery and development of novel agents for the treatment of cancer by integrating chemical biology, molecular oncology research and development capabilities and resources from the government, academia and industry. Pharmaron will participate in the CBC as a Specialized Center, providing DMPK and other bio-analysis services.

As a CBC participant, Pharmaron is honored to provide R&D services to support the discovery and development of promising new molecular entities focusing on unmet medical needs in therapeutics not adequately addressed today.

The DMPK and bioanalysis platform is a comprehensive and integrated component of the drug R&D services at Pharmaron. It spans from discovery in vitro ADME, in vivo PK and PK/PD correlation, to regulatory compliant DMPK and bioanalysis, including metabolism studies using radioactive compounds. This platform has played a critical role in successfully advancing agents from early discovery to preclinical and clinical development phases for Pharmaron’s partners and collaborators. Pharmaron is confident that by working together closely with other members of the CBC, innovations from the CBC can be translated into novel and effective anti-cancer medicines.
