The shape of things to come…

Enjoyed reading the latest publication from Novartis on ABL001 – a direct descendant of the GNF-2 and GNF-5 allosteric ABL inhibitors (https://www.nature.com/nature/journal/v543/n7647/full/nature21702.html).

Welcome to Our New Website!

ACD was incorporated in 2007 and we have slowly been building our presence in the kinase drug discovery industry. Our clients include most of the major pharmaceutical and biotechnology leaders in the kinase field. Our growing presence in the industry has – unfortunately – not been reflected in our website presence. That is all about to change! On this site you will discover a host of new tools that will give you easier access to information about who we are, what we offer, and how we can better help your kinase drug discovery efforts. Please take a few moments to register and learn more about our panel of sixty-nine (69) cell-based tyrosine kinase assays.
