Liverpool ChiroChem (LCC) is one of the fastest growing chemical technology innovators in the UK. Our mission is to accelerate the discovery and development of high quality-drugs, by supporting pharmaceutical companies through their medicinal chemistry projects. Since LCC was founded in 2014, we have developed a suite of reactions to produce thousands of novel, multifunctional and 3D molecules.

We are excited to host a school insight day in summer 2022, where we will give A-Level students a taste of a job in the chemical industry. This is a great opportunity for students who have a strong interest the chemical sciences, to see three of our Technical Specialists in action, and to learn about each of their journey’s, and to get an insight into their day-to-day responsibilities in the workplace.

Liverpool ChiroChem is delighted to offer an insight day to young people aged 16-19 years old. Do you have an interest in Chemistry and ever wondered how the skills from this subject are applied in industry. In this insight day professionals working in the industry will be sharing with you :-

Liverpool ChiroChem and the story so far
Our success in finding solutions for pharmaceutical companies
How our formula’s and processes have been developed
An opportunity for you to apply your Chemistry knoweldge where we will be giving you task and work problems to find solutions
Do you want to test your knowledge and skills and work with us on this insight day to find solutions?

Students will get a taste of what it is like to work in an industry where we apply Chemistry to find solutions for tomorrows medicines.

Would you like to take part in this insight day?

The insight day will be 9.15 till 12.00 mid day.

We look forward to hearing from you and receiving your applications!

When applying, answer the following questions

  • What inspires you to pursue a career in science?

More about what we do: The company started in 2014, based on the discoveries made in the Xiao group, about the enantioselective reduction of pyridines to the corresponding chiral piperdines. The Xiao group rapidly realised the potential of these researches, as many marketed drugs contain substituted piperidine rings. These initial discoveries led to the formation of LCC. Since then, we’ve enhanced the scope of our expertise to provide leading scientific organisations around the world with access to chirally-pure compounds that play their part in small molecule drug discovery. Thanks to our chemical technologies, unique chiral building blocks are available. Our compounds fit the 3D-rich category that, before, remained scarce within existing chemical space. This unique set-up of synthons is now available for your research programme(s), from hit identification to lead optimisation. Through an ethos of purposeful curiosity, we innovate within our field so that our customers can bring new drugs to market faster, better and easier.
