Assay Development to Product Candidates: A Savory Journey on an Integrated Discovery Process

Joe Cohen
Senomyx, Inc.


Senomyx is a biotechnology company using proprietary taste receptor-based assays and screening technologies to discover and develop novel flavor enhancers and taste modulators for the food and beverage industry. Starting with the development of a GPCR Savory receptor assay we incorporated all the latest molecular discovery technologies into a vertically integrated process that enabled us to rapidly discover product candidates. This integrated journey will touch upon how each discipline has contributed to the process of building a continually growing knowledgebase and a momentum towards active molecules.
