Case study: Discovering a novel therapy for urinary
tract infections through outsourcing in-silico drug discovery

Serious bacterial infections represent a worldwide threat, due mainly to the emergence of antibiotic-resistant bacteria for which there are limited therapies. Research from the University of Cambridge highlighted inhibition of an E. coli enzyme as a plausible route to reduce pathogenicity and increase effectiveness in UTIs.

The importance of medicinal chemistry expertise
in outsourced discovery projects

In recent years, minimizing time-to-market has been prioritized above all else. When you choose to collaborate with Cresset Discovery, you get flexible access to a varied and experienced team, including medicinal and computational chemists, to accelerate your drug discovery projects.


Ignite™ is a new technology to enable rapid 3D virtual screening in combinatorial chemical spaces. The Ignite 3D descriptor uses Cresset field technology which describes a molecule through its spatial extent of electrostatics and its shape for a given conformation. Apply Ignite to your project by outsourcing to Cresset Discovery.
