Driving DUB drug discovery and development
Founded 13 years ago, Ubiquigent has cultivated an unrivalled track record and comprehensive range of specialist services focused on the exploitation of DUBs and the ubiquitin-proteasome system (UPS). As such, we are the partner chosen by many leading industry and academic organisations for their DUB-focused drug discovery and development programmes spanning the fields of protein degradation, stabilisation, and cellular signalling.
Alongside the delivery of specialist services to customers, we have an internal pipeline of drug discovery programmes and are developing a strong IP portfolio encompassing DUB inhibitors, DUB-targeting PROTACs and DUBTACs, providing potential new starting points for client discovery programmes through partnerships and out-licensing agreements.
Ubiquigent benefits from high calibre backing, including from IP Group PLC and Scottish Enterprise. Based in a state-of-the-art facility located in Dundee, Scotland, we sit at the centre of highly relevant additional scientific expertise and capabilities.
