Liverpool ChiroChem

A spin-out from Liverpool University in 2014, Liverpool ChiroChem (LCC) is a chemistry-based contract research organisation (CRO) that produces and supplies chiral small molecules to the pharma and biotech R&D industry. Chiral small molecules form the basis of many pharmaceuticals and drugs being developed today. The company’s specialist products can be used as building blocks, fragments, API and intermediates to enable small molecule drug discovery, lead generation and optimisation.

With an R&D team in the UK and production through its laboratories and offices in Jiangsu Province, China, LCC’s technologies have been developed through years of research in response to a demand for 'chirally' pure chemicals for use in drugs. The company’s patented methods create exceptionally pure chemical forms using a much cheaper and quicker method compared to incumbents.

LCC’s highly experienced team includes Prof. Jianliang Xiao, who received the 2008 prize for Process Chemistry Research from the Society of Chemistry and Industry having previously worked alongside 2001 Nobel Prize in chemistry winner Prof. Ryoji Noyori, on chiral molecules, and Dr Jianjun Wu who was shortlisted for the Bionow Promising Technologist of the Year Award in 2014.

To date the company has raised £1.1m private equity through VCs and Angel investors, to develop its chemical portfolio and target pharmaceutical R&D companies worldwide. The company counts pharma and biotech companies Merck, Novartis, Domainex, Charles River and Bayer as customers.
