Over several years, the teams of the COBRA laboratory have developed strong and lasting partnerships with the pharmaceutical and base chemicals sectors. Thanks to its wide range of skills in synthesis and structural analysis associated with exceptional technical support facilities, COBRA has become an important partner for these manufacturers. These partnerships have lead to several CIFRE and sponsored PhDs, and the establishment of a joint laboratory with Janssen (in the summer of 2011). The research at the UMR COBRA has also produced several patents. Some of these have lead to the creation of start-ups, which are supported by COBRA, operating on its premises.
