Cellzome

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb) – A team led by researchers at Cellzome, a part of GlaxoSmithKline's R&D division, has developed a thermal profiling-based method for identifying protein drug targets and measuring protein-drug binding.

While chemical proteomics has traditionally focused on pharmaceutical work, several recent collaborations suggest that the field is establishing a foothold within agricultural research, as well.

University of North Carolina researchers have developed a chemical proteomics approach to measure global kinase activity and used it to investigate drug resistance in triple-negative breast cancer.

Proteomics firm Cellzome said this week it has won more than €2.3 million ($3.1 million) in grants funding its participation in three separate research projects.

DVS Sciences has appointed Joseph Victor president and CEO. He will assume the role from DVS co-founder Scott Tanner, who will become the company’s chief technology officer and general manager of its Canadian operations.
