European Lead Factory call for proposals

The closing date for submissions to the European Lead Factory is Friday 28th May 2021.

Following the UK’s exit from the European Union on 31 January, we are pleased to confirm that the European Lead Factory still welcomes screening proposals from UK researchers.

This is a fantastic opportunity for researchers to get access to a top class high-throughput screening platform.


On this page, you can find the application forms, legal documents and all other relevant information required for your proposal submission.

The screening deck consists of around 535,000 compounds consisting of about 300,000 compounds from the original pharmaceutical companies, along with almost 190,000 compounds from custom design and synthesis. Furthermore, Grünenthal and Institut de Recherche Servier have provided around 50,000 new compounds not previously available to the European Lead Factory. Compounds from partners were selected for inclusion in the library based on several important quality criteria, as well as on the prerequisite that they are unique and not commercially available. Efforts were also taken to increase diversity, resulting in a top-quality compound library.
