Project partners

The project consortium consists of 25 partners from 12 countries and more than 200 researchers are currently working on the project.

Successful development of protein kinase inhibitors requires a multidisciplinary approach. The consortium includes academic groups with unique expertise in biochemistry, structural crystallography, synthetic organic chemistry, lead structure optimisation and other fields of rational drug discovery.
