Platform 1: Natural Product Library

Designed to drive innovation and support companies of all sizes on the discovery journey, this platform offers industry early access to one of the world’s most diverse, and completely novel Natural Product Libraries, developed by the Liverpool School of Tropical Medicine (LSTM).

This vast, untapped pool of thousands of environmental bacterial, and fungal isolates has the potential to shape the next generation of transformative novel antimicrobial products and therapies.

The library is designed in a modular format to improve usability, increase efficiency and access, and bring down cost. This enables a targeted approach, where specific isolate groups can be screened quickly and cost-efficiently. World-class end-to-end expertise and after-care from the expert team at LSTM ensures companies are supported at every stage of the discovery journey.

Expert antimicrobial product development support, validation, and consultancy is also available to industry partners at the early stage of the product development journey.
