Monash Fragment Platform (MFP)

The Monash Fragment Platform (MFP) provides academic and commercial researchers with access to fragment-based drug discovery (FBDD) technologies for their therapeutic targets. The facilities are located at the Monash Institute for Pharmaceutical Sciences (MIPS) in Parkville, Australia’s largest and most successful pharmaceutical institute. FBDD screening uses our high-quality, in-house fragment library designed to maximise chemical space coverage and enable rapid hit optimisation. Screening cascades are tailored for each target and can be performed using a variety of techniques including NMR spectroscopy and our state-of-the-art surface plasmon resonance (SPR) facility. Structural biology and medicinal chemistry expertise utilising our standardized REFIL strategy enables the rapid elaboration of fragments into leads without the requirement for a large chemistry program.
