Sygnature Discovery

Sygnature Discovery logo

Sygnature Discovery is a leading independent integrated drug discovery and pre-clinical services CRO. Founded in 2004 and private equity-backed since 2017, we operate a fully-enabled research facility in Nottingham, UK, housing nearly 400 staff (80% of our scientists have PhDs). Our experienced R&D scientists possess all the professional skills and know-how required to undertake the most demanding of drug discovery and/or pre-clinical development projects and drive them from target validation, through hit identification, hit-to-lead and lead optimization to development candidate. Sygnature collaborates with its partners via risk share and FTE-based collaborations.
