About Jerini AG

Jerini AG is a drug discovery and development company based and founded in 1994 in Berlin, Germany. The company has built a pipeline of several preclinical and two clinical projects (phase IIa) with its proprie-tary discovery platform including SPOT, pepSTAR™ and pepMED™. The platform enables massive parallel syntheses and screening of peptide leads, pharmacophore identification and transformation into pepti-domimetic and small molecule drugs. The peptide lead to small molecule conversion process is supported by medicinal chemistry and cheminformatics and guided by matching the pharmacophore derived from mas-sive peptide SAR data information against a virtual small molecule library. Jerini’s platform allows the rapid identification and/or optimization of agonists and antagonists for (difficult) target proteins. The technology has been successfully demonstrated in in-house and partnered programs for highly valuable, but difficult targets where conventional methods have failed. Jerini’s approach creates value by reducing time and costs and by decreasing attrition rates. Find more information on or feel free to contact us.
