Sustained focus on employee and campus safety helped us maintain near-normal operations across all our campuses despite the continuing pandemic.

    Earlier in the quarter, we signed an agreement with Deerfield Discovery and Development (3DC) to advance therapeutic discovery projects from target validation through to pharmacological proof of concept and preclinical evaluation, both in large and small molecules. As part of this agreement, 3DC has awarded us four new IDD projects. Integrated drug discovery (IDD) is a strategic focus area for the Company. This reflects our ability to deliver projects from early discovery to the clinic. During the quarter, our scientists have continued to support the government and the community in the fight against the coronavirus by using our domain knowledge and infrastructure.
