Professional Internship for PhD Students

Sygnature Discovery is an award-winning provider of fully integrated drug discovery expertise to the global pharmaceutical industry. We actively engage in all stages of the drug discovery process, from hit identification, hit-to-lead, and lead optimisation, as well as participating in complete and multi-disciplinary drug discovery programmes. Bioscientists at Sygnature Discovery play an essential role in supporting and leading integrated client projects as well as delivering specialist biophysical and cell imaging assays.
