Fragment-based screening is now well-established as a powerful approach to early drug ("lead") discovery.
How will this experiment be affected by the Covid-19 arrangements at Diamond?
Working conditions at Diamond are continuously subject to review and potential change. It is foreseen that with easing of pandemic conditions in the UK, Diamond may be able to open to additional numbers of users in the future, and so for the next call we are assuming we will be back to normal operations.
For academic access calls for proposals are issued twice a year. The deadline for allocation period 1st April - 30th September 2022 is the 6th of October (details here) and applications are made via the User Administration System (UAS).
Like all Diamond access, proposals are reviewed competitively by independent peer review (panel 11); our current capacity is 30-40 screens per year, though likely to increase.
For any questions, contact Frank von Delft, the I04-1/XChem Principal Beamlines Scientist.
For proprietary access, contact Alex Dias from the Industrial Liaison Office.
