Fonaxa provides fee-for-service support to assist structure-based drug discovery and development. Our primary activity is to provide X-ray analysis of protein-ligand complexes to assist fragment-based searches and guide optimisation of lead compounds. We can also provide structural data for small molecules, crystallisation screens and protein expression services.

The company is based within the UCL Division of Medicine at the Royal Free Hospital and operates as a social enterprise venture; gift aiding any surplus to UCL in support of medical research. Fonaxa is a subsidiary of UCLB.

We have considerable experience in the field and have participated in a wide selection of collaborative ventures with large and small partners.
