Our target identification and validation services are the cornerstone of successful radiopharmaceutical development. We utilize advanced bioinformatics tools and experimental approaches to identify and validate novel targets that are crucial for disease intervention. Our team works closely with clients to ensure that the selected targets are not only scientifically robust but also commercially viable.

The identification of potential hits is a critical step in the drug discovery process. At Rdcthera, we employ a variety of high-throughput screening techniques and computational methods to identify compounds that interact effectively with the validated targets. Our comprehensive screening libraries and state-of-the-art screening platforms ensure that we can rapidly and accurately identify promising hit compounds.

Once potential hits have been identified, our hit-to-lead services focus on refining these compounds to enhance their efficacy and safety profiles. We conduct thorough in vitro and in vivo evaluations to assess the pharmacological properties of the hits. Our iterative optimization process ensures that only the most promising candidates progress to the lead optimization stage.

In the lead optimization phase, we leverage our extensive expertise in medicinal chemistry, radiochemistry, and pharmacokinetics to transform lead compounds into viable drug candidates. Our team employs cutting-edge techniques to improve the potency, selectivity, and stability of the leads while minimizing potential side effects. This phase is crucial for maximizing the therapeutic potential of radiopharmaceuticals and preparing them for clinical development.
