To date, 1050 scaffolds have been evaluated by the library selection committee (WP10) in which Mercachem is represented by Jorg Benningshof. The experimental validation (WP11) of 273 scaffolds has successfully been accomplished under the supervision of Jorg Benningshof.
Compounds are being produced on validated scaffolds at a steady rate at Mercachem. To date, the number is over 33,000 and we are on track for reaching our goal of 40,000 compounds by the end of 2017.
The efforts of the library selection committee have been published in a recent paper in Drug Discovery Today, which comments on the achievements and prospects of the ELF Project.
